Information

Australian Peggy Glanville-Hicks (1912–1990) is considered one of the most beguiling composers in the English-speaking regions. Her Opera, The Transposed Heads, based on Thomas Mann’s eponymous, bizarrely fascinating novella inspired by an Indian legend distinguishes itself by employing a varied tonal language that, thanks to the extensive use of drums, is driven by an energetic, exotic pulse.
