Imagine opening a door to a world of musical brilliance you’ve never experienced before. Franz Schreker’s early ballet could have been a Hollywood film score—but it was the celebrities of 1908 Vienna who were on the red carpet for its premiere. Based on an Oscar Wilde short story, The Birthday of the Infanta launched Schreker’s extraordinary career. Brahms’s emotionally powerful first piano concerto was also the first piece that brought him fame. Between these two mighty pieces is a little musical gem. Superstar British composer Thomas Adès, whose music is being celebrated all over the world in this, his 50th birthday year, takes three miniatures by the French Baroque composer François Couperin and crafts them into an exquisite modern masterpiece, sure to “rêve” you up.
