Music of Today - Bernd Richard Deutsch

Part of Classical Season

Expect colourful, playful and zany works from the oeuvre of 40-year-old Austrian rising star Bernd Richard Deutsch. Hailed as one of the most exciting composers today, his unique style draws 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.


Players from the Philharmonia Orchestra
Jean-Philippe Wurtz, conductor


Bernd Richard Deutsch: Mad dog for ensemble
