Adès and Gerstein Celebrate Ligeti's 100th Birthday

A collage of conductor Thomas Adès and pianist Kirill Gerstein. On the left, an action shot of Adès conducting. He has his arms raised with one hand holding a baton and the other reaching out, as if he's trying to carry the sound of the orchestra. He wears a black polo against a black background. On the right, Gerstein looks over his shoulder at the camera, smiling softly. He's wearing a white dress shirt that's unbuttoned at the top with a black blazer. He stands against a cream-colored  wall.

Conductor Thomas Adès and pianist Kirill Gerstein celebrate the centennial of Hungarian composer György Ligeti with his kaleidoscopic Piano Concerto, and Adès leads the BSO in his own highly-acclaimed Tevot, Stravinsky’s elegant ballet score Orpheus, and Franz Liszt’s stormy symphonic poem Les Préludes.
