World Premiere of Thomas Adès's Inferno at the Los Angeles Philharmonic
May. 01, 2019
On May 10, Thomas Adès's new ballet, Inferno, will receive its world premiere in concert form by the Los Angeles Philharmonic under the direction of Gustavo Dudamel at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Adès describes the piece as "a grateful tribute to Franz Liszt, the composer of Hell and demonic music." Following additional concerts on May 11 and 12, Inferno will be performed again by the LA Phil on July 12-13, this time at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, under the composer's direction, and featuring The Royal Ballet of Covent Garden performing new choreography by Wayne MacGregor. Also on the program are Adès's Violin Concerto, featuring Leila Josefowicz and In Seven Days, with pianist Kirill Gerstein as the soloist. Next season, Inferno will travel to Amsterdam to be interpreted by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on June 18-19, 2020.
