World Premiere of Thomas Adès's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra
Mar. 01, 2019
On March 7, Thomas Adès led the Boston Symphony Orchestra in the world premiere of his Concerto for Piano and Orchestra featuring pianist Kirill Gerstein with additional performances on March 8 and 9. Zoë Madonna of the Boston Globe lauded the premiere performance, saying:
"Thomas Adès’s new Concerto for Piano and Orchestra made a statement even before the first notes of its world premiere sounded on Thursday evening at Symphony Hall. A formidable musical triple threat (composer, performer, conductor) who has been the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s artistic partner since 2016, Adès has to his name a broad oeuvre of operas, chamber music, and orchestral pieces, which has led some to wonder: What can’t he do?"
Kirill Gerstein and the Boston Symphony Orchestra give the New York premiere of the Concerto for Piano and Orchestra on March 20 at Carnegie Hall.
