Crumb Black Angels: Thirteen Images from the Dark Land
Schubert String Quartet in D minor, “Death and the Maiden”


Manchester Collective

“A voyage of the soul... conceived as a kind of parable on our troubled contemporary world”.

- George Crumb

Join Manchester Collective as they journey to the heart of darkness, performing two string quartets by masters of the craft, conjuring up twin visions of a world tearing itself apart.

Black Angels is a show about darkness, but also, about light. From George Crumb’s ethereal “God Music” to the unforgettable melodies of “Death and the Maiden”, this is a programme full of arrestingly unique and beautiful work.

This tour represents a radical departure from the world of traditional classical recitals - audiences will experience Black Angels in gothic cathedrals, major concert halls, and in a one off midnight set at an internationally heralded nightclub, to be announced in October 2018.
