Musical Manchester

A painter paints his pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence. We provide the music, and you provide the silence.
–Leopold Stokowski

Manchester has a massive and impressive musical heritage, reflected in its public art.  Here is just a small taster.


Chopin in the Spinningfields area



Canal view in the Castlefield area



Northern Quarter mosaic

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
–Aldous Huxley
