Concert number five Le Bal Masqué.

- Leos Janacek - Concertino
- György Ligeti - Bagatelles
- Francis Poulenc - Le bal masqué
- Thomas Adès - Living Toys

It is with joy and much relish that ACO brings you this concert of intriguing absurdities. Concertino is Janacek's dark, stark, nocturnal mini piano concerto riddled with animal references. Censored by the Soviets for being too 'dangerous' are Transylvanian composer Georgy Ligeti's Bagatelles, all reminiscent of Bela Bartok's folkloric works. Poulenc's Le Bal Masqué is an outrageous 'profane cantata' of dadaist hedonism, performed in the composer's 'cafe instrumentation' and sung by mezzo soprano Christie Cook.
By no means child's play, Thomas Adés' Living Toys features angels, funerals, soldiers, jazz-infused trumpet with big band blasts, and a heavily disguised 'Daisy Bell' reference from 2001 - A Space Odyssey.
