Gábor Takács-Nagy, the new Hungarian-born Music Director of Manchester Camerata, has already caused a stir. The mercurial former leader of the Takács Quartet is a fine musician and inspirational figurehead. In this concert, he conducts works with Hungarian connections including Bartók’s energetic Concerto for two pianos and percussion played by four wonderful soloists. On percussion, we have the legendary Dame Evelyn Glennie and our very own formidable percussionist Janet Fulton, with Philip Smith and The Bridgewater Hall’s new Associate Artist, Noriko Ogawa, on piano. ‘If you’ve never experienced Glennie, you shouldn’t miss her. If you’ve heard her before, chances are you already have your tickets.’ - The Washington Post At 9.45pm we are delighted to present a late night performance by Evelyn Glennie, Noriko Ogawa and Philip Smith of Yoshihiro Kanno's Earth Stream for piano duo and percussion (UK première) and Brahms' Hungarian Dances.
