Listen... the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra is playing

Composer and conductor H.K. Gruber joins the ESO for a rather unusual performance tonight and tomorrow that features his work Frankenstein!!  The BBC Music Magazine said:

"Is Frankenstein!! a set of Roald Dahl-ish sinister-magical songs masquerading as a grown-up song-cycle?  Or political satire hiding under a charming Viennese facade?  Or is it a caberet entertainment, like Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire, but with added sugar and chocolate?  Gruber himself takes on the role of chansonnier with lip-smacking relish."
