Thomas Adès Day: 'Arcadiana'


  • Calder Quartet
  • Thomas Adès piano
  • Nicolas Hodges piano

Time and the mysterious nature of its passing occupy Thomas Adès’s string quartet The Four Quarters, just as the related process of change and flow occupied Lutosławski in his Variations on a theme of Paganini.

Adès joins the Calder Quartet to perform the fiendishly difficult keyboard part in his Piano Quintet.
