Thomas Adès by Brian Voce, Kirill Gerstein by Marco Borggreve
Thomas Adès is a fascinating composer and a pianist of considerable talent known for his “incisive, brittle, and commanding performances” (The New York Times). He partners with Kirill Gerstein, lauded by The New York Times for the “spontaneity and scintillating sound” of his playing, in a program of two-piano works. They play a rarely heard Shostakovich arrangement of a Stravinsky work, Debussy favorites, Ravel’s hypnotic waltz, and Adès’s paraphrase on music from his popular opera, Powder Her Face.

Thomas Adès is also performing March 20.

Kirill Gerstein is also performing March 20.
