Cabaret du Néant

My piece, Four Colonisations, for soprano, clarinet and cello, is to be performed at this event:

Decadence, squalor, derangement and nihilism proliferate as Art is ambushed by urbanized, industrial society, causing composers to turn to social commentary.

A night of desperate satire, sensuous whimsy and bitter irony with Pulse, presenting songs, chansons, lieder and schläger by Satie, Schoenberg, Eisler, Weill, Cage, Hannan, Fokkens and Crane.

Peterhouse Theatre, Trumpington Street, Cambridge
