But in all seriousness, these were definitely some of the most fun and most frustrating pieces that I worked on for this recital. In particular, the Adès was such a joy to work on! It's an excerpt from his opera The Tempest which I'm slightly obsessed with right now... If you haven't seen it, subscribe to The Met Opera on demand and watch it now! (They offer a 7 day free trial so there really is no excuse.) It is one of the most incredible operas I have ever seen! I could go on for days about how amazing it is but I'll stop there and just let you experience it for yourself.
Go forth and enjoy! :)
