Thomas Adès conducts

Date: 7 Mar
Time: 19:30
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

Thomas Adès - Conductor
Thomas Trotter - Organ

Stravinsky, Britten... and Thomas Adès.

When Britain's most brilliant living composer conducts these two giants, you'll hear sounds like you've never heard before. That goes double for Polaris, Adès's own shimmering vision of the night sky. As for the world premiere of a new organ concerto by Gerald Barry, one of our most uproarious musical pranksters - well, who knows? One thing's for sure though: making history has never been so entertaining!

Britten Sinfonia da Requiem, 21′
Gerald Barry Organ Concerto (CBSO co-commission, World premiere), 20′
Thomas Adès Polaris, 14′
Stravinsky Symphony in Three Movements, 22′
