  1. Suite, from Powder her face - Thomas Adès
  2. Organ Concerto - Gerald Barry
  3. Perséphone - Igor Stravinsky

'For a composer, Stravinsky is like a terminus that you have to go through to get anywhere', says Thomas Adès. 'I love everything he did.' So we're particularly excited that he's agreed to conduct Stravinsky's astonishingly fresh and distinctive re-telling of the myth of Perséphone: part ballet, part choral melodrama, all Stravinsky. Toby Spence sings the part of the priest Eumolpus; but first, Thomas Trotter unleashes the new organ concerto by the Irish master of musical anarchy, Gerald Barry. And Adès conducts his own sideways tribute to Stravinsky: a suite, with two new movements, from his deliciously decadent first opera Powder her face.
