It is very exciting to welcome the Manning Camerata to Masterpiece London for a world’s first for music. Four groups will play from the compass points around the fair and create a soundscape, which will both intrigue and delight. As a promenade performance the acoustic wave will both advance and recede and at points you will hear all four groups and others just one (and that only faintly). Whilst they will be performing well-known pieces, it is our hope that they will be heard and appreciated in a new and relevant way.
The event will showcase music from Mozart in the 18th Century to Benjamin Britten in a soundscape of masterpieces that will weave strands of sound throughout all parts of the building during the performance.
This is a bold performance choice with powerful and brilliant music of genius which matches the ethos of Masterpiece London in its presentation of the most exuberant, cultivated and lively art alongside beautiful artefacts assembled in one place.
