Features
The Infant Minstrel and His Peculiar Menagerie by : Lera Auerbach


Commissioned work by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra; the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the BBC Proms.

“'The Infant Minstrel and His Peculiar Menagerie' is a symphonic fantasy for solo violin; choir; and orchestra. Violinist Vadim Gluzman performs the lead role of a traveling musical storyteller who introduces a collection of wondrous tales by the mysterious author Erroneous Anonymous. The Infant Minstrel guides listeners in a voyage of imagination. Auerbach's new composition speaks to the young and the young at heart with child-like; yet enigmatic and humorous poems in the tradition of 'nonsense' authors such as Edward Lear; Lewis Carol; Hilaire Belloc; and Mother Goose; as well as Edith Sitwell; Shel Silverstein; Edward Gorey; and Tim Burton. The text is relevant; yet timeless; absurd; yet profound; simple; yet multi-layered. We meet characters such as the Common Corporant; the Moon Rider; and the Flying Pig that enjoys sitting on a cloud watching the crowd. The work embraces with humor the traditions of the British and Gaelic bard and the troubadour; whose songs told embellished and exotic tales. It also finds inspiration in the menagerie – a diverse collection of creatures and curiosities – and the sideshow presentation of oddities and the bizarre.” (Lera Auerbach)
