Programme Notes

'The iron cockerel sings' is a short, fast, brightly-coloured collage of inventions written for the same instrumentation as Janacek's 'Mladi' (wind quintet plus bass clarinet). The title comes from the autobiographical writings of the master of 'Art Brut', Adolf Wolfli, ‘writer, poet, draftsman, composer’.
