Manchester Camerata premieres 17-minute film celebrating the career and life of its Music Director Gábor Takács-Nagy

Manchester Camerata continue their 50th anniversary celebrations with a new release in their Untold series, this time spotlighting its much-loved music director Gábor Takács-Nagy.

The 17-minute film directed by Joseph Lynn features music performances by members of the orchestra linking recollections shared by the music director, including an account of how a loss of technique forced Takács-Nagy to stop playing and switch to conducting.

It’s a charming film which illustrates once again Manchester Camerata’s instinctive understanding of one way to use digital video to great effect – telling compelling stories. Not everything needs to be short clips and funny memes. Executing with style and poise resonates and enhances the brand.

There was a similar aesthetic in Camerata’s film raising awareness Alzheimers on World Alzheimers Day last year. Such work positions Manchester Camerata well as thoughtful digital content creators who are steadfastly following a distinctive path.
