Thomas Adès is a musical phenomenon: as the New Yorker’s Alex Ross writes, ‘the news that classical music is a dead or dying art hasn’t reached him.’ These Premises Are Alarmed (1996) is a short but thrillingly virtuosic piece, showing off nearly every sound and technique in the orchestra, while ... but all shall be well (1993) was his first piece for a large orchestra. Bartók’s driving First Piano Concerto completes the programme.
