Adès conducts In Seven Days

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

There’s a special dynamic when a composer conducts – as if their music is being created afresh.

Thomas Adès has one of his own pieces at the centre of this performance: the ‘concerto for piano’ that he created in 2008.

The multifaceted pianist Kirill Gerstein helps him bring it to life tonight, throwing new light on two definitive 20th-century classics – Lutoslawski’s grand, glittering Third Symphony and Stravinsky running off the leash amidst the glamour of 1940s Los Angeles.
