Since their launch in 2019, Manchester Baroque has built a reputation for engaging and vibrant performances of historical music on period instruments. Through concerts of chamber music, larger scale orchestral works and oratorios, Manchester Baroque are committed to the continued development of historically informed performances at the centre of the city’s arts culture: Reflecting Manchester’s rich heritage as the world’s original modern city…

This concert is a recreation of a concert first performed in Manchester on the 25th June 1745.

The reconstruction of the 1744/45 concert series is part of a research project being undertaken by Dr Pauline Nobes, Artistic Director of Manchester Baroque. Based on a uniquely detailed and what appears to be a scholarly and accurate transcript of a set of accounts of the first ever concert-giving activity in Manchester, this concert series reconstructs the 16 subscription concerts which took place between November 2nd, 1744 and August 20th, 1745. These accounts, written in a small “cyphering” record book dated Nov. 1st 1744, were published a hundred years later by a gentleman journalist John Harland (1806 – 18), first in The Manchester Guardian and later in a journal published by the Chetham Society. Background information about the 16 concert programmes and details outlining the process to recreate and revive the Musick in Manchester series, can be found online at manchesterbaroque.co.uk.
