For several decades, Kirill Gerstein has been developing a close artistic partnership with one of the greatest living composers, the British Thomas Adès. Among their many collaborations, they recorded the album In Seven Days together, with music by Adès, and the composer wrote his Piano Concerto expressly for Gerstein. In this much-anticipated recital, Gerstein will play two pieces by Adès, Az ág and Thrift, in a programme that highlights the pianist’s great versatility, including pieces by Schumann, Kurtág, Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Francisco Coll and Ravel.
