New Release: Thomas Adès – Tevot, Violin concerto, Couperin Dances

"One of the most accomplished and complete musicians of his generation."  - The New York Times on Thomas Adès, June 2005 

Let's take a break from Brahms and breathe some fresh air. Here's a brand new release from EMI Classics, out on this Monday!

World premiere release of four of Thomas Adès' new works recorded live, partly conducted by the composer himself, and, in the case of Tevot, by Sir Simon Rattle with the BPO.

More details on EMI's official site.

I heard about this release from EMI Classics on Twitter earlier this week then did a search in Spotify, at that time no result, so I listened to Adès' Powder Her Face instead that night... Today I was browsing through Afront's New On Spotify Page and saw this one. Kudos to EMI, for bring the classics as well as exciting contemporary works to music lovers worldwide, and syncing with spotify so efficiently:)
