Mark Simpson director / clarinet
Liverpool’s own internationally acclaimed composer and soloist, Mark Simpson’s formative musical experiences were listening to Ensemble 10/10 concerts. Now he makes his debut directing the Ensemble. Including works by himself and this year’s Composer in Association, Gary Carpenter, the programme centres on Henze’s extraordinary depiction of the Jean Genet novel. Each instrument becomes a character in the story with Simpson’s solo clarinet in the lead role – a spectacular and emotive end to Ensemble 10/10’s 21st birthday season.

Jimmy’s brand new show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things. Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love. But they’re just jokes - they are not the terrible things.
