From Oasis to New Order, The Smiths to The Buzzcocks, The Stone Roses to Elbow, Manchester England saw an explosion of groundbreaking musical acts starting in the mid 1970s that continues to this day, making it a true mecca of the artistic world. With their new album Classic Manchester, this group of 4 extremely talented classical musicians celebrate the city and its most memorable musical offerings, dramatically reinventing such classics as "Love Will Tear Us Apart," "Wonderwall," "This Charming Man," "Blue Monday" and others.

They are full-time professional musicians who perform with such renowned orchestras as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and The Hallé. They've even earned the praise of some of their rock counterparts such as Jarvis Cocker who declared, "The Manchester String Quartet are the real deal: not only are they fantastic players but, in John Purton, they have an incredibly talented composer and arranger. They're mega!" So whether you're a fan of classical music or not, you're sure to hear and appreciate the extraordinary depth of talent possessed by this fine group.
