About

Anthony Burgess wrote his own film script for 'A Clockwork Orange', the notorious 1962 novel brimming with ultra-violence joyfully committed by youths fuelled by drencom, willful amorality and the music of Beethoven. Stanley Kubrick discarded Burgess' screenplay, favouring his own rather operatic version. A Clockwork Operetta is a cabaret-style setting of the original Burgess songs from various parts of the screenplay.

Also featured on this disc are two chamber pieces American Terpsichore for piano quartet, and Angels and Fireflies (recorder version) - plus another cabaret song set The Radio Song.

Kevin Malone is Director of Composition at the University of Manchester, UK.
