Coffee Concert, The Eskandari String Quartet

Our Saturday Coffee Concerts offer some of the best free concerts in the city, with talented musicians performing in a beautiful and friendly setting, followed by complimentary cakes and refreshments.

On Saturday 7 December the Cathedral will welcome the Eskandari Quartet. Formed in 2017, the Eskandari Quartet provides a fresh look at the classics, creating an atmosphere of musical sophistication and refinement.

These young, vibrant and  accomplished musicians are all graduates of the University of Manchester and perform a variety of repertoire, with a particular focus on contemporary music and collaboration with modern-day composers. Some of their most recent projects include a performance of  Borodin's String Quartet No. 2, alongside Gloria Coates' innovative String Quartet No. 3 and new commissions by Manchester-based young composers Will Frampton and Benjamin Marrington-Reeves.
