A concert of brand new music inspired by Anthony Burgess’s novel M/F, a book that deals with riddles, delinquency, incest and talking birds. Four composers will present specially commissioned work for violin, cello, flute, clarinet, percussion, with spoken word and visuals.
M/F tells the story of a college drop-out who sets out on a pilgrimage in which he meets a repulsive doppelganger, an ugly sister, a lion-faced man, a bird-whisperer and many shocking discoveries. Burgess’s use of language is at its most ambitious in M/F: the story is a roller-coaster ride with the taboo subject of incest at its core.
