An acclaimed conductor and pianist as well as a composer, Thomas Adès has outgrown his status as the wunderkind of the British scene and become one of the most imposing figures in contemporary music. For his LSO Live debut, he conducts all of his seminal ‘Trilogy’ works – Asyla, Tevot & Polaris – pieces that not only occupy a special place in his output, but in modern classical music as a whole.

Press reviews

Gramophone

‘This is an excellent recording all round, the the LSO responding superbly well to the many technical and expressive challenges posed in performing Adès’s orchestral music.’

Financial Times

‘The music is carried aloft by great, heaving cosmic waves through a universe glistening with heavenly sounds…These are technically challenging scores that take an orchestra to its limits. With Adès conducting, the London Symphony Orchestra reaches for the stars.’

The Guardian

‘The three pieces do share extra-musical associations too – their titles evoke notions of safe havens and the ways of finding them – but what links them more importantly is the sheer mastery of their orchestral writing, as this recording from the Barbican shows so vividly.’
