On Sat 9 Mar, the innovative classical music ensemble Manchester Collective unites with Mercury Prize-nominated pianist Fergus McCreadie for The Unfurrowed Field, a captivating musical voyage which blurs the boundaries between jazz, new classical and folk forms at the RNCM, with tickets guaranteed to sell out.

Promising to surprise and delight audiences of all tastes, McCreadie and his acclaimed trio of jazz musicians join forces with the Collective’s string quartet in a playful exploration of the thrilling commonalities across long-distinct genres, with a breathtaking programme which spans Haydn, Anna Meredith and a selection of McCreadie’s brand-new arrangements, as well as a specially created collection of traditional folk songs from fellow Scotsman, Donald Grant.

Rarely heard in UK concert halls, Morton Feldman’s Rothko Chapel offers an eerie yet stirring dual tribute to the titular Texan chapel and the groundbreaking namesake artist, performed alongside four world-premiere pieces from emerging composers at the cutting edge of contemporary classical music.
