Thomas Adès' new orchestral work on world tour

Thomas Adès' new orchestral work on world tour
The New World Symphony Orchestra operate in Miami, a region once best known for sun and surf, which is fast becoming a world-class cultural destination. It was a natural for the New World Symphony therefore to commission Adès to write a work to open their state-of-the-art new concert venue designed by Frank Gehry. 

The new orchestral work will fully demonstrate the eagerly-anticipated acoustic and a collaboration with
Tal Rosner will result in an accompanying video.  The new work will be approximately 15 minutes in duration. It was co-commissioned by no less than six other international organisations to be performed as a stand-alone concert work.
