Programme Note:
Black Jacques is dedicated to the memory of Jack/Jacques (1980? - 1996), a snaggle-toothed feline who came to stay with the Fenwick family for a night and stayed for many years.Much of Black Jacques’ thematic material was plundered from two well-known songs: “Frere Jacques” and “Hit the Road, Jack”, which (by coincidence) shares a bass line with “The Cat Came Back” and “Stray Cat Strut”.

Premiere Information:
