By Michel Faber.
Irene MacDougall reads from the darkly comic novella about a group of singers gathered in a remoted Belgian chateau to rehearse a fiendishly difficult modern work.
Abridged by Rosemary Goring.
Of all the composers that the courage consort had ever met, Pino Fugazza proved to be the least charming.
United in their dislike of the composer, the courage consort attempted to get on top of the Partitum Mutante.
The Courage Consort's Belgian fortnight ends in absurdity, disharmony and tragedy.
