New/old music in Manchester

A new piece of classical music is to premiere in Manchester Cathedral on 8th June as part of Manchester Cameratas’ “The Playoff”.  The piece was written partly to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Bach’s Cello Suites – written in happier times before the recent explosion.  Colin Riley is the composer, and his two soloist cellos (so to speak) went to the same School of Music in Manchester – Guy Johnston and Gabriella Swallow.  Here they are, at rehearsals.
