About This Performance

This performance is part of the Aspect of Adès Festival, April 1-9 at Walt Disney Concert Hall

Aspects of Ades

In Seven Days is an ambitious piano concerto that mixes hi-tech imagery by Tal Rosner with Adès’ music. “I wanted to do something that would have visuals and tell a story but would also be a piece of music,” Adès explains. “I think of it like a ballet but instead of dancers you’ve got video.” In telling the familiar Creation story, Rosner’s visuals will be played out across huge screens with seemingly abstract images, taken from video footage of the two concert halls that jointly commissioned the piece – Walt Disney Concert Hall and the South Bank Centre (London).
