As a just turned teenager, living 200 km away, I was not allowed to go alone to Stockholm. I did read Jarry that also appeared at the time in new editions, and I did see the Televised version 1972. And for culinary reasons I have always since been a ardent advocate of pâte à physique!Wonder what music of Penderecki that was played?
Hi, Kung Bolingo!I seem to have read that Ubu Roi voice is characterized by the combination of clarinet and trumpet and for the hysterical Mother Ubu are used the Bass clarinet and the English horn.You can read a detailed review of Ubu Rex music here: Penderecki - Ubu RexGreetings,Janas.
