This program opens the Chamber Classics series with Austrian composer HK Gruber’s Frankenstein!! A Pan-Demonium for Chansonnier & Ensemble. Debuted in 1978, this humorous piece includes spoken word and sung verse by a narrator or chansonnier to accompany the orchestra who talk-sings of Frankenstein and other demons he encounters. The program concludes with Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 60 known as Il Distratto, or “The Distracted,” which is a playful piece intended to almost make the audience laugh out loud.
