The mighty Manchester Collective returns for a typically adventurous night of new music – including new pieces from three of today’s freshest and most original composers.

Morton Feldman’s Rothko Chapel is a towering work of American minimalism – a haunting homage both to the Texan chapel of the title and to artist Mark Rothko himself, who killed himself shortly before it opened. Little heard in UK concert halls, it’s the perfect platform for Manchester Collective, teaming up tonight with violist Ruth Gibson and the bewitching SANSARA choir.

Alongside it, three works written for the Collective by the ever-eclectic composer Isobel Waller-Bridge, American original Katherine Balch and regular collaborator Edmund Finnis. Expect the unexpected.
