Adès performs with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra

'Thomas Adès is one of the most original compositional voices in a quasi-modernist/postmodernist vein to emerge from Britain in decades.

The most striking things about his Asyla, which he conducted with commanding precision, were the originality of its textures and the way these unfolded with elusive logic to create a highly original narrative of sound and shape.
There were carefully layered counterpoints like shifting geological strata, dark melodic passages on bass oboe, steely flashes with strange fluorescent afterglows and moments of fierceness and radiance.'
Sydney Morning Herald (Peter McCallum), 22 October 2010
