Manchester Collective: The Centre is Everywhere

  • The Stoller Hall
  • £18-£11

His music is a breath on the wind.
His music is light dancing on water.
His music is a lover’s whisper in the dead of night.
It is both beautiful and strange.

Manchester Collective proudly present a beautiful and mysterious new work by Edmund Finnis. The Centre is Everywhere will be performed across seven cities by the full Manchester Collective lineup of twelve solo string players. Alongside Finnis’ “iridescent and compelling” music (The Guardian), the show also features an unholy mashup of Ligeti’s Métamorphoses Nocturnes and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons,performed by Artistic Director, Rakhi Singh. It closes with Richard Strauss’ devastating Metamorphosen – a piece of music written by an old, dying man during the last months of the Second World War. The piece is an elegy for Europe.

Metamorphosen is a piece we’ve wanted to play for a long time – it’s a real ‘Mount Everest’ for string players – and we can’t wait to share it with you in this, our largest and most ambitious programme to date.” Manchester Collective

Manchester Collective’s commission of The Centre is Everywhere by Edmund Finnis is kindly supported by the PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial
