Joining Manchester Collective for this unique collaboration is Abel Selaocoe’s band, Chesaba, a trio specialising in the performance of music from the African continent. Witnessing Abel perform is a truly awe-inspiring experience – his performances seem to fill the air with a fizzing energy, and invariably raise goosebumps on the arms of his audiences.
The programme covers everything from a virtuosic arrangement of Giovanni Sollima’s inspired Lamentatio, darkness and light by Ravel and Haydn, a set of original African work performed for the first time, and two gorgeous Danish folk songs to round off the night.

English Chamber Orchestra London Season 2017-2018
When Joseph Haydn came to Britain, ...More
When Joseph Haydn came to Britain, he sparked a Georgian media-frenzy – and he knew that London audiences deserved only the very best. Two of his most exuberant symphonies are at the heart of this concert, including the brilliant No. 97: a sensation in London in 1792, and just as entertaining in 2018!
The award-winning Nicolas Altstaedt shares his passion tonight, and plays two delightful showpieces for his own instrument, the cello. Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations is a sparkling celebration of the 18th century by Russia’s supreme master of melody. And as for Saint-Saëns’ First Cello Concerto: well, romance just doesn’t get more elegant.
