"The Hototogisu (or Lesser Cuckoo) is a bird widely invoked in Japanese haiku poetry of the 17th-19th centuries. The poet listens for its arrival from the mountains both as a harbinger of spring and a voice from the land of the dead."
BCMG will give the Birmingham premiere of O Hototogisu! – fragment of a japonisme at CBSO Centre, as part of our 2018/19 season, full details of which we are planning to announce soon. Although we are still fixing a final date, the concert is to provisionally take place in the last months of 2018, and will be conducted by the composer himself.
