In March 2019 Kirill Gerstein gave the première of Thomas Adès’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in Boston, with the composer at the conductor’s desk – a fascinating work with quirky rhythms and jazzy sonorities. At least since 2016, when his opera The Exterminating Angel premièred at the Salzburg Festival, Adès has numbered among the leading composers of our time. Now he will present his Piano Concerto in Munich with Kirill Gerstein and the Bavarian RSO, along with Benjamin Britten’s Suite on English Folk Tunes. These two English works will be bookended by Leoš Janáček’s The Fiddler’s Child and his famous Sinfonietta.
