This is Rattle: Adès

Programme curated by the composer

18 September 2017 / 19:30
Milton Court Concert Hall
An evening of music by living composers, personally chosen by Thomas Adès to celebrate the arrival of Sir Simon Rattle at the LSO.

As Sir Simon Rattle begins his London tenure, he’s renewing his commitment to the music of living composers. In celebration, one of those composers – Thomas Adès – has chosen eight inspirational works by some of the most distinctive voices of our time.

It’s a wonderfully diverse evening too – a real ‘state of the art’ survey of classical music in the 21st century, from the concentrated poetry of Kurtág and Birtwistle to the communicative energy of Osvaldo Golijov and the late Nicholas Maw. Up close in Milton Court, the young players of the Guildhall School are the ideal team to celebrate a new chapter in British music.
