Thomas Adès and Schubert

Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1
United Kingdom

Louis Lortie

Known to Wigmore audiences for a memorable Beethoven sonata cycle and to CD collectors for a sparkling exploration of Ravel’s complete piano music, Louis Lortie doesn’t do things by halves.

His enthusiasm for the work of Thomas Adès has been similarly probing, thorough, and persistent. Recently he gave the German première of Adès’s piano quintet. In this concert he plays an Adès score from the mid-90s inspired by the idea of angels rising heavenwards in shafts of light.
