Part of the 2017/18 season
Thomas Adès celebrates the arrival of Sir Simon Rattle in London by personally programming a concert of eight inspirational works by some of the most distinctive voices of recent times.
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.
