On Fri 10 May, the inimitable Manchester Collective returns to The Bridgewater Hall for another evening of bold, intrepid music partly inspired by the artist Mark Rothko and the namesake chapel, before showcasing a trio of brand new pieces from three groundbreaking modern composers.

Rarely heard in UK concert halls, Morton Feldman’s gorgeous, minimalistic Rothko Chapel offers an eerie yet stirring dual tribute to the titular Texan chapel and the trailblazing abstract painter, who took his own life shortly before it opened. Alongside the headline piece, the Collective showcases three emerging composers each debuting a new innovative work, with world premieres of work by the famously eclectic composer Isobel Waller-Bridge, American original Katherine Balch and regular collaborator Edmund Finnis.
