Thomas Adès: Lieux retrouvés (UK premiere of version with orchestra)
Prokofiev: Symphony No 1 in D major, Classical
Augustin Hadelich (violin)
Steven Isserlis (cello)
Thomas Adès (conductor)
Thomas Adès's Lieux retrouvés was inspired by the cello's 'haunting sense of time and place'. Here, Steven Isserlis performs it in its new cello-and-orchestra guise. Francisco Coll's piquant Iberian miniatures for violin and orchestra contrast with 'Classical' symphonies by Prokofiev and Beethoven.
