BSO Artistic Partner Thomas Adès leads his own Lieux retrouvés ("Rediscovered places") with English cellist Steven Isserlis, for whom it was written, as soloist. The piece is in four movements, evoking a series of contrasting landscapes. Two Stravinsky works bracket the Adès work. The Pulcinella Suite is from the composer's 1921 ballet, written for Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. Stravinsky drew from pieces of the Baroque and other earlier eras to compose the score, giving it a simultaneously modern and archaic sound. His Perséphone for speaker, tenor soloist, chorus, and orchestra retells the ancient myth of the origin of the seasons. With a text in French, Perséphone contains some of Stravinsky's most haunting music.
