Recommends Classical

Yo-Yo Ma & NY Philharmonic

Barbican, London, 2nd April

America’s greatest living composer, John Adams, celebrates his 70th birthday this year. Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic (below) bring two of his classic works to London: the pulsing urban symphony that is Harmonielehre and the sparkle of his Chairman Dances—a glittering foxtrot for orchestra that the composer describes as an “outtake” from his Nixon in China. The concert also includes the European premiere of a cello concerto by Esa-Pekka Salonen. With Yo-Yo Ma as soloist, this will be a work worth hearing.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s April issue: Ross McKibbin, John Curtice and Lisa Nandy examine the state of the Labour Party and question its survival at the next general election. McKibbin takes a long view and suggests that the party’s problems started long before Jeremy Corbyn, Curtice argues that breaking the party is unlikely to go as well as some may think and Nandy argues that tackling unaccountable power could help restore faith in the party. Nicholas Timmins says the NHS has always experienced financial crises so is this time any different? Lucy Wadham charts the rise of France’s Front National. Also in this issue: Owen Hatherley explores Edinburgh’s architectural conundrum, Freya Johnston on Jane Austen and Avi Shlaim on the tragedy of Yitzhak Rabin—the last best hope for peace.
