Manchester Camerata, the city's world-class chamber orchestra, is renowned for bringing audiences performances that are bursting with energy and vibrancy. Following a powerfully mesmerising performance with the orchestra in 2011, Italian cello sensation Giovanni Sollima – penned the 'Jimi Hendrix of the cello' by New York's Newsday – returns as composer and performer in one of the most exciting programmes of the season. Schumann's expressive Cello Concerto and Piazzolla's emotionally rhythmic Libertango are fitting companions for two of Sollima's own works. The first is a short lyrical piece called Hell I which was part of a project from 2004, Songs from the Divine Comedy, based on Dante Alighieri's epic poem. The second, Folktales, for cello and orchestra, blends contemporary, jazz and traditional, with an improvisatory structure allowing Sollima to demonstrate his incredible cello technique and rockstar energy.


Composer-in-Residence, Laura Bowler, discusses the composer/performer role from her own perspective as composer, singer and director.
