Formed in the late 1960s and based in Manchester, the NCO is now one of the country’s top, professional chamber orchestras, with its concerts and recordings warmly received by critics. The members of the orchestra are distinguished chamber musicians who regularly appear as soloists. Described as being ‘simply world-class’ by Opera Magazine, NCO presents two contrasting musical interpretations of the Four Seasons – Vivaldi’s 1723 original, and Glass’ 2009 companion piece, performed by violinist Chloë Hanslip; a young performer already established as an artist of distinction on the international stage. Joining them will be Mike Garry – a poet championed by Philip Glass – whose gritty poetry has won admiration far and wide.
