Thomas Adès at 50

Thomas Ades conducting vigorously

Join us in a season-long celebration of one of the UK's greatest contemporary composers.

Members of our artistic family from across three continents come together to celebrate composer Thomas Adès in his 50th birthday year. But this is not a career retrospective; rather a springboard for more memorable music to come, with new commissions and premieres from Adès littered throughout the year. As far as we’re concerned, one of our greatest living composers is just getting started.
