There’s something unique about hearing a great composer conduct. And it’s not just their own music that comes alive: a composer’s insight can make even a familiar Shakespearean classic sound as if it’s being re-created before our ears. Thomas Adès takes two of his own recent works – the Dante-inspired Inferno Suite and (in its first UK performance) the suite from his opera The Tempest – and pairs them with two pieces of his own choice; elemental, emotionally-charged pieces of musical storytelling by Sibelius and Tchaikovsky. With Adès himself on the podium, it’s hard to say which will be more electrifying.
