As both internationally-renowned composer and visionary conductor, Thomas Adès is one of the most compelling figures in the contemporary arts, bringing a unique insight to everything he performs.

Today, Ravel’s fairy-tale ballet and Adès’ own orchestral tour de force Tevot (composed for the Berlin Philharmonic) book-end two fantastic premieres from renowned contemporary pianist Nicolas Hodges: the exuberant piano concertino No seré yo quien diga nada by the young Spanish composer Francisco Coll, and a new Piano Concerto by musical maverick Gerald Barry.

6.15pm Free pre-concert talk. The Irish composer introduces his brand new Piano Concerto – interviewed by Stephen Maddock.
