Manchester Camerata Presents The Music Of Arthur Russell, Philip on Saturday 12th June 2021
NEW LATE NIGHT SHOW ADDED 10PM!
Disco cellist meets classical minimalists, Manchester Camerata showcases the sound of New York 80s underground. Set in Camerata’s new home The Monastery (Gorton) this show pays homage to three New York Legends. Arthur Russell, cellist, singer, composer and producer of a new genre of music, one that fluidly blended the distinct sounds of country and classical, disco and experimental composition. Russell collaborated with classical composer and pianist (and fellow New-Yorker) Philip Glass in 1983. Most famously known as a minimalist composer and for his work with the Philip Glass Ensemble, Glass has also worked with some of the biggest names in music: Mick Jagger, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie and Iggy Pop.
Julius Eastman was an American composer, pianist, vocalist and dancer. He and Russell formed a deep kinship during the 70s and early 80s leading to Eastman conducting nearly all of Russell’s orchestral recordings (compiled as First Thought Best Thought).
Accompanied by live visuals portraying the vitality of New York City & set in the stunning venue of The Monastery this limited capacity production is not to be missed.
Tickets £20 /£15 and £3 for Gorton Residents.
