Adès conducts In Seven Days

Date: 26 Sep
Time: 19:30
THOMAS ADÈS conductor

KIRILL GERSTEIN piano
LONDON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Launching the 2018-19 season

STRAVINSKY Symphony in Three Movements
THOMAS ADÈS In Seven Days
LUTOSŁAWSKI Symphony No. 3

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 fascinating evening: the 'concerto for piano' that he created in 2008, and which The New York Times called 'wondrously strange and somehow elemental'. The brilliant Kirill Gerstein helps him bring it to life tonight, throwing new light on two definitive 20th-century classics - Lutosławski's grand, glittering Third Symphony and Stravinsky running off the leash amidst the glamour of 1940s Los Angeles.
