Event Details

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.

Philip RousiamanisThe composers taking on this challenge are:
Shaun Davies, a guitarist and a newcomer to contemporary classical composition. He draws his influences from jazz, metal, 20th century/modern classical and film-score.
Anna Disley-Simpson, a BBC Proms Inspire winner in her second year at the RNCM. She is currently writing for the European Union Chamber Orchestra and has had her work played at Tate Britain.
William KZ Hearne, a third-year RNCM student with a keen interest in acoustic and electronic performance.
Philip Rousiamanis (pictured), performance artist and founder of the White Noiz Ensemble, and violinist for the Lux quartet. He has written for short films and has worked with dancers, actors, poets and visual artists.

This event is part of our #Burgess100 celebrations. We recommend you buy a ticket in advance.
