Music and mental health in Manchester: Emanuel Rimoldi and Manchester Camerata

Manchester Camerata at Home
Prizewinning Romanian-Italian pianist Emanuel Rimoldi, who made his Wigmore Hall debut last week, performs with the Manchester Camerata on Thursday 2 February 2017 at the arts centre HOME in Manchester. The concert, which features music by Robert Schumann, Sergei Rachmaninov, Hugo Wolf and Jimi Hendrix, looks at the relationship between music, creativity and mental health (a theme which was also reflected in Alice Coote's recent recital at Wigmore Hall). 

All the composers in the programme struggled with mental health issues, using their extraordinary abilities as both a therapy and a means to personal redemption. The music will be interspersed with readings which illustrates the artist's emotional and mental state at the time they were writing the music.

Full programme, Schumann Quintet in E flat major Op.44, Rachmaninov Trio Elegiaque No.1 in G minor, Wolf Italian Serenade. Hendrix Purple Haze. At 6.30pm, Manchester Camerata Youth Forum presents the premiere of a film about young people’s Manchester journeys.

Full details from the Manchester Camerata.
