Coffee Concert – Kingston (PICMF)
Joelle Leandre ‘Taxi’ (1982) for solo bass and voice, performed by Chi-chi Nwanoku at Purbeck International Chamber Music Festival.
Taxi! was inspired by those frantic cabs in Paris, but the problems are universal. An hilarious music-theatre style piece by the French virtuoso, equally successful for speaking bassist or with narrator.
The concert will also include Beethoven’s Septet in E flat op. 20 for winds and strings.
