January 25-27, Beethoven, Ligeti, Adès
Thomas Adès conducts Beethoven,
Ligeti, Adès and Stravinsky featuring violinist Augustin Hadelich,
BSO Artistic Partner Thomas Adès returns to lead music of his own-a suite from his acclaimed 1995 chamber opera Powder Her Face-and joins with violinist Augustin Hadelich for György Ligeti's 1993 Violin Concerto, a wonderfully varied work that touches on virtually all of Ligeti's late musical concerns in material ranging from poignant, folk-like melody to delighted virtuosity.
