34yr old Adès to get a retrospective

The Barbican in London is to host a retrospective of Thomas Adès's meteoric career. Despite being only 34, Adès has become what the Guardian calls "a colossus of the international music world."

The festival called Traced Overhead will feature a new orchestral work The Ark, performed by the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle, as well as looking at works from Ades's 17 year career.

"It would be timid of us to wait another 10 years before doing this to see if he's really great," said Sir John Tusa, managing director of the Barbican.
