Conductor: Gábor Takács-Nagy
Born in Budapest, Gábor Takács-Nagy began studying the violin at the age of eight. As a student of the Franz Liszt Academy, he won First Prize in 1979 in the Jeno Hubay Violin Competition and later pursued studies with Nathan Milstein.

From 1975 to 1992, he was the founding member and leader of the acclaimed Takács Quartet performing with legendary artists, Lord Menuhin, Sir Georg Solti, Isaac Stern, Mstislav Rostropovitch, and Paul Tortelier. In 1996, he founded the Takács Piano Trio and made world-premiere recordings of works of Hungarian composers Franz Liszt, Lászlo Lajtha and Sandor Veress. Gábor Takács-Nagy is considered one of today's most authentic exponents of Hungarian music.

In 1998, he established the Mikrokosmos string quartet with compatriots Zoltan Tuska, Sandor Papp and Miklos Perényi, recording in 2008 the complete cycle of Bartok’s string Quartets for which they were awarded the "Excellencia" prize by Pizzicato Magazine. In 1982, he was awarded the Liszt Prize.

In 2002, following in a long-line of Hungarian musical tradition, Gábor Takács-Nagy turned to conducting. In 2006, he became the Music Director of the Weinberger Kammerorchestra and in August 2007, the Music Director of the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra. A DVD of the performances of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2 and Shostakovich's Concerto for piano, trumpet and strings with Martha Argerich, David Guerrier and the VFCO was released in June 2011. From 2010 until 2012, he was Music Director of the MAV Symphony Orchestra Budapest. Since September 2011, he has been Music Director of Manchester Camerata, one of the UK's leading chamber orchestras and in September 2012 became Principal Guest Conductor of the Budapest Festival Orchestra. In January 2013 he was nominated Principal Artistic Partner of the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

Gábor Takács-Nagy is also a dedicated and highly sought-after chamber-music teacher. He is Professor of String Quartet at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Geneva and International Chair in Chamber Music at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. In June 2012, he was awarded honourary membership of the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Artist: Jean-Efflam Bavouzet Pianist
"He makes you listen to music as if you are discovering it Eureka!-style: yes, that's what the composer must have meant." - Financial Times

Award-winning pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet enjoys a prolific recording and international concert career. In summer 2015, he returned to the BBC Proms performing Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra under Nicholas Collon. European highlights in 2015/16 included debuts with Opernhaus Zürich under Gianandrea Noseda, Svenska Kammaorkestern under Jérémie Rhorer, Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona and Gothenburg Symphony, where he performed both of Ravel's piano concertos in one programme under the baton of François-Xavier Roth - he collaborated with Roth again with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in November. Later in the season, he returned to Orchestre National de Belgique with Ion Marin as well as Manchester Camerata, Haydn Orchestra of Bolzano and Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano under Vladimir Ashkenazy.

In North America, Bavouzet returned to the Aspen Festival in summer 2015 and will this season return to The Cleveland Orchestra with Vladimir Jurowski, San Francisco Symphony (under Tortelier) and Seattle Symphony Orchestra (with Morlot). Last season, he toured to venues such as Carnegie Hall with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Further afield, he was Artist-in-Residence with Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo and worked with NHK Symphony Orchestra, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide symphony orchestras and Hong Kong Philharmonic.

Bavouzet records exclusively for Chandos and his disc featuring the complete Prokofiev Piano Concertos with BBC Philharmonic and Gianandrea Noseda won the Concerto category of the 2014 Gramophone Awards. Other recordings include Haydn's Piano Concertos with Manchester Camerata and Gábor Takács-Nagy, Bartok's Piano Concerto's with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda and Stravinsky's Complete Works for Piano and Orchestra with Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo under Yan-Pascal Tortelier. Bavouzet's recordings have garnered two other Gramophone Awards, two BBC Music Magazine Awards, a Diapason d'Or and Choc de l'année. Ongoing recording projects include Beethoven and Haydn Piano Sonata cycles.

In recital, Bavouzet regularly performs at venues such as The Louvre in Paris and London's Wigmore Hall and has recently collaborated with composer Jörg Widmann in a chamber music project at the Prinzregententheater in Munich. In addition to his return to London's International Piano Series this season, he also gives recitals in Santa Barbara, Denver and Calgary as well as Singapore.

Bavouzet has worked closely with Pierre Boulez, Maurice Ohana and Bruno Mantovani and is also a champion of lesser-known French music, notably that of Gabriel Pierné and Albéric Magnard. He regularly collaborates with the Palazzetto Bru Zane and is Artistic Director of the International Lofoten Piano Festival.

Presenter: Manchester Camerata
"Probably Britain's most adventurous orchestra" (The Times) and a Registered Charity, Manchester Camerata is redefining what an orchestra can do. Famous for innovation, the orchestra pops up in all sorts of places, from concert halls to care homes, and collaborates with a spectrum of artists, from classical superstars like Martha Argerich to the Hacienda DJs. The orchestra's Music Director and conductor, Gábor Takács-Nagy, is one of the finest musicians on the planet, and a magnet for international artists. Camerata is at the forefront of music-led dementia research, and its pioneering community programme helps to promote social change in its communities and shape national policy.

The great Hungarian musician Gábor Takács-Nagy is in his sixth season as Music Director and is signed until 2019. Listening to Camerata with Gábor at the helm is to experience music in high definition. By 2018, Gábor will have led us into a new artistic partnership model. These diverse and extraordinary artists will lead the orchestra into uncharted musical territory, challenging and developing what we do, and bringing opportunities to help us achieve our ambitions. With Gábor as lead partner, these artists will be embedded in the city of Manchester, curating programmes for you, our audience.

Exceptional violinist Adi Brett was appointed Leader in 2014. Adi plays a 1752 Guadagnini violin, kindly on loan to the orchestra by Jonathan Moulds CBE, one of the UK's most inspirational philanthropists.

Our Camerata in the Community programme is not about learning music – it's about using music to enable people to make positive change in their own lives. Our work in health and wellbeing is growing, and so is the research behind it. In partnership with The University of Manchester and Lancaster University, Camerata PhD, Robyn Dowlen, is pioneering a tool to measure "in-the-moment" embodied experiences for people living with dementia – a new field of study.
