About the album

Kirill Gerstein’s decade long relationship with British composer and pianist Thomas Adès is reflected through this latest release from myrios classics. Recorded in the luxurious acoustics of the Symphony Hall in Boston, the three Mazurkas for solo piano feature alongside the world premiere recordings of Berceuse from The Exterminating Angel and the concert paraphrase on Powder Her Face for two pianos performed with the composer. Together with these works is In Seven Days for piano and orchestra which anticipated Adès’s recent piano concerto written, like Berceuse, especially for Kirill. The live performance was captured in the Seiji Ozawa Hall as part of the 2018 Tanglewood Music Festival, with Adès conducting the Tanglewood Music Centre Orchestra.

Powder Her Face paraphrase, recorded March 17, 2019; Berceuse + Mazurkas, recorded March 19, 2019 at Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

In Seven Days recorded live July 30, 2018 at Seiji Ozawa Hall, Tanglewood, Lenox, MA, during the Tanglewood Music Center’s 2018 Festival of Contemporary Music (Thomas Ades, festival director)
