City Pierrot Ensemble: Mr Punch




Series: City Summer Sounds Festival 2017

The newly formed City Pierrot Ensemble perform Arnold Schoenberg's expressionist masterpiece, Pierrot Lunaire and Michael Finnissy's rarely heard Mr Punch, which sets a Punch and Judy show against a score of explosive virtuosity.

The ensemble comprises established instrumentalists associated with City's music department, and will be conducted by Roger Redgate, with featured vocalists Alwynne Pritchard and Adam de la Cour, both of whom are acclaimed for their energetic and exploratory performances.

The concert will be preceded by an afternoon of talks and discussions on music and the Commedia dell'arte: full programme to be announced.
