Adès’s hand-picked programme captures the remarkable ability of music to conjure up countless different worlds at the drop of a hat. Make the mad dash from the summit of Olympus in Beethoven’s Prometheus; rustle in the undergrowth with an assortment of woodland wildlife in Janáček’s Concertino; and feel the grind of life aboard an 18th-century sailing ship in the UK premiere of Adès’s new work, Shanty*.
Tickets for the live stream must be booked online in advance and are only available until the event begins.
