‘…a dazzling fantasy of colour and semi-abstraction…[the work]could hardly be more alluring. The music was just as dazzling as the visuals. One left the hall lost in a kaleidoscope of colour, touched by an exquisitely decorative experience.’ The Sunday Times
Thomas Adès is one of today’s most eagerly watched composers: his music has enthralled audiences the world over. In Seven Days is a collaboration with artist and filmmaker Tal Rosner, based on the Creation. It is heard next to the pulsing, trance-inducing rhythms of Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians, a 1970s minimalist masterpiece.
