Jean-Philippe Wurtz conductor
Deutsch Mad Dog(UK première)
Deutsch Red Alert! (from Dr Futurity)(UK première)
40-year old Austrian rising star Bernd Richard Deutsch is one of the most exciting composers today: his colourful, playful and zany works draw the listener into a whirlwind fantasy where nothing is quite as it seems. The surreal Mad Dog for ensemble depicts the ‘day in the life’ of a dog, and Dr. Futurity refers to Philip K. Dick's hallucinatory science fiction stories: wit, madcap humour, lyricism and over-the-top virtuosity are all present.
This concert is part of the Music of Today series
