On 18th April 2013, Mark Eager & Welsh SInfonia will give the WP of Roxanna's Orchestrapaedia (which mirrors Britten's Young Person's Guide - but with a twist...) at the RWCMD in Cardiff. Each instrument's variation takes on an anthropomorphic character which has been illustrated by Roxanna's artist brother Jem Panufnik (click here to see some of the pics) - these wonderful illustrations will be projected above the orchestra through out the performance. Co-commissioned by Welsh Sinfonia and Cheltenham Music Festival, the piece will receive another performance at Cheltenham Festival on 7th July.
