InterviewThomas Adès and Pekka Kuusisto in conversation with Matthew McDonald
Thomas Adès makes his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker
Thomas Adès is one of the best-known English composers since Benjamin Britten. His sensuous works have been part of the repertoire of the Berliner Philharmoniker for years. Here he collaborated with the orchestra for the first time as conductor. In addition to two of his own compositions – the nostalgic Violin Concerto (soloist: Pekka Kuusisto) and the Exterminating Angel Symphony – Thomas Adès conducts works by Hector Berlioz and Gerald Barry.
