Ray Wylie Hubbard writes the kind of songs that make you want to ride along no matter where hes going, because you know its gonna get strange somewhere along the way. Anyone whos followed him over the long and winding path he has traveled already knows he possesses the kind of exceptional gift for observation that any songwriter yearns for. In the 1970s, Ray Wylie Hubbard joined country music "outlaws" Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson as part of the progressive country vanguard on the Texas music scene. Unlike the clean-cut crooners from Nashville, these Austin and Dallas cowboys grew their hair long and added a healthy dose of rock 'n' roll to their music. A leading figure of the progressive country movement, Hubbard is also well-known for authoring the perennial anthem "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother" recorded by Jerry Jeff Walker in 1973. "And while that song certainly helped launch his career," noted David Goodman in Modern Twang, "its immense popularity has tended to obscure the depth and complexity of Hubbard as a songwriter and musician."Hubbard's writing became deeply spiritual, dense with allegory and allusion, his musical landscape stalked by preachers with a pistol in one hand and a Bible in the other." Ten albums later, Hubbard has continued to solidify himself as an elder statesman of Texas Music and a songwriter's songwriter. In recent years, his music has found a comfortable place atop the Americana Music Charts where he continues to contribute to one of the most flourishing genres of the century.Jim Caligiuri noted in the Austin Chronicle that "Hubbard has become one of the best singer-songwriters of our time. Since 1992, he's released a series of albums, each more impressive than the last."In April 2015 Ray released The Ruffian's Misfortune to mass critical praise and will tour relentlessly in support of the new release. He will also release his autobiography "A Life…Well Lived" later in the year.

View biography in full page >

Born in London in 1971, Thomas Adès studied piano and composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and read music at King's College, Cambridge.  Renowned as both a composer and a performer he works regularly with the world's leading opera companies and festivals.  

Recent conducting engagements include a tour with the Britten Sinfonia, concerts with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the Gulbenkian Orchestra as part of his Gulbenkian Foundation Residency, the London Symphony and Sao Paulo State Symphony Orchestras, his debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC, Finnish and Danish Radio Symphony Orchestras, the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (whose Music Director he was between 1998 and 2000), the London Sinfonietta, Ensemble Modern and the Athelas Ensemble.
He recently conducted productions of The Rake's Progress at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and Zurich Opera.  His most recent piano engagements include a recital at Carnegie Hall with Ian Bostridge, and an appearance with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic. In 2010 he undertook a piano recital tour that included Carnegie Hall, and London's Barbican Centre featured the premiere of his new piano work Concert Paraphrase from Powder Her Face.  2010/11 saw Adès return to Australia as an artist in residence at the Melbourne Festival.  Future plans include concerts with the Accademia Santa Cecilia in Rome, Barry's "The Importance of Being Earnest" with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, and a piano recital at the Festival de Saint Denis.

Between 1993 and 1995 he was Composer in Association with the Hallé Orchestra, which resulted in The Origin of the Harp (1994) and These Premises Are Alarmed for the opening of the Bridgewater Hall in 1996. Asyla (1997) was a Feeney Trust commission for Sir Simon Rattle and the CBSO who performed it at Symphony Hall in August 1998 in Rattle's last concert as Music Director. From 1999-2008 he was Artistic Director of the Aldeburgh Festival.

Adès' first opera, Powder Her Face (commissioned by Almeida Opera for the Cheltenham Festival in 1995), has been performed all around the world, was televised by Channel Four, and is available on a DVD as well as an EMI CD. Most of the composer's music has been recorded by EMI, with whom Adès has a contract as composer, pianist and conductor. Adès' second opera, The Tempest, was commissioned by the Royal Opera House and was premiered under the baton of the composer to great critical acclaim in February 2004. It was revived at Covent Garden in 2007 – again with the composer conducting and to a sold-out house – and has also been performed in Copenhagen, Strasbourg and Santa Fe. Recently released to outstanding reviews, The Tempest is also available on an EMI CD and in France, the disc was recently awarded the prestigious Diapason d'Or de l'année and the 2010 Classical Brit Award for Composer of the Year. In September 2005 his violin concerto, Concentric Paths, written for Anthony Marwood, was premiered at the Berliner Festspiele and the BBC Proms, with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe under his baton. His second orchestral work for Simon Rattle, Tevot, (2007) was commissioned by the Berliner Philharmoniker and Carnegie Hall. 

Appointed to the Richard and Barbara Debs Composer Chair at Carnegie Hall for 2007/8, he was featured as composer, conductor and pianist throughout that season.  Adès' most recent works include a 'Piano concerto with moving image' entitled In Seven Days, a collaboration with video artist Tal Rosner, commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and London's Southbank Centre and Lieux Retrouvés, a work for 'cello and piano written for Steven Isserlis and commissioned by Aldeburgh Festival and Wigmore Hall.

Adès' music has attracted numerous awards and prizes, including the prestigious Grawemeyer Award (in 2000, for Asyla), of which he is the youngest ever recipient. View biography in full page >

The multifaceted pianist Kirill Gerstein is rapidly ascending into classical music's highest ranks. With a masterful technique, discerning intelligence, and a musical curiosity that has led him to explore repertoire spanning centuries and numerous styles, he has proven to be one of today's most intriguing and versatile musicians.

Mr. Gerstein is the sixth recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award, presented every four years to an exceptional pianist who, regardless of age or nationality, possesses broad and profound musicianship and charisma and who desires and can sustain a career as a major international concert artist. Since receiving the award in 2010, Mr. Gerstein has shared his prize through the commissioning of boundary-crossing new works by Oliver Knussen, Chick Corea, Brad Mehldau, Timothy Andres and Alexander Goehr. Mr. Gerstein was also awarded First Prize at the 2001 Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition in Tel Aviv, received a 2002 Gilmore Young Artist Award and a 2010 Avery Fisher Grant.

Highlights of his 2015-16 season in North America include performances of Scriabin's Prometheus: Poem of Fire with Ricardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony, Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 2 with Semyon Bychkov and the Berlin Philharmonic, Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 1 with the Cleveland Orchestra, and playing both of George Gershwin's piano concertos in the original jazz-band version to open New York's 92nd Street Y's 15/16 season; re-engagements with the Los Angeles Philharmonic as well as with the Toronto, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Colorado, Utah and Oregon symphonies and the National Arts Centre Orchestra; a tour to Australia and New Zealand; his debut with the Royal Concertgebouw with concerts in Amsterdam and Frankfurt; a European tour with the Czech Philharmonic; and recitals in New York and Houston.

Kirill Gerstein's recent North American engagements include performances with the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia and Minnesota Orchestras, and the Boston, St. Louis, San Francisco, Atlanta, Baltimore, Detroit, Indianapolis and Montreal symphonies among others. He has also recently appeared at the Aspen Music Festival, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Chicago's Grant Park, Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony, Blossom with the Cleveland Orchestra, and with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Bravo! Vail Valley Festival, Mann Music Center and Saratoga; and performed in recital at New York's 92nd St. Y and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and in Boston, Toronto, Berkeley, Vancouver, Detroit, Miami and Princeton.

Internationally, Kirill Gerstein has played with such prominent European orchestras as the Czech, Munich, Rotterdam and London Philharmonics, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Dresden Staatskappelle, Finnish Radio Orchestra, Tonkünstler Orchestra Vienna, WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne and the Zurich Tonhalle, as well as with the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo. He has performed recitals in Paris, Prague, Hamburg, London's Wigmore Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall, and at the Liszt Academy in Budapest. He made his Salzburg Festival debut playing solo and two piano works with Andras Schiff and has also appeared at the Lucerne and Jerusalem Chamber Music Festivals as well as at the Proms in London.

Mr. Gerstein's second solo recording featuring Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Schumann's Carnaval was released by Myrios Classics in June 2014. His first solo recording with works by Schumann, Liszt and Oliver Knussen, also for Myrios, was chosen by The New York Times as one of the best recordings of 2010. He also collaborated with Tabea Zimmerman on two recordings of sonatas for viola and piano for Myrios, released in February 2011 and November 2012. His most recent recording of the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 and the Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin was released by Myrios in March 2015 and is the first recording using the new critical edition recently completed by the Tchaikovsky Museum in Moscow using the composer's original second version.

Born in 1979 in Voronezh, Russia, Mr. Gerstein studied piano at a special music school for gifted children and taught himself to play jazz by listening to his parents' extensive record collection. At the age of 14, he came to the United States to study jazz piano as the youngest student ever to attend Boston's Berklee College of Music. After completing his studies in three years and following his second summer at the Boston University program at Tanglewood, Mr. Gerstein turned his focus back to classical music and moved to New York City to attend the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Solomon Mikowsky and earned both Bachelors and Masters of Music degrees by the age of 20. He continued his studies in Madrid with Dmitri Bashkirov and in Budapest with Ferenc Rados.

Mr. Gerstein became an American citizen in 2003 and divides his time between the United States and Germany.

Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter has won the admiration and hearts of audiences around the world for her passionate yet thoughtful and sensitive music making played with an effortless technique. Winner of the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award, one of only a handful of pianists and the only woman to have received this honor, Ms. Fliter divides her time between North America and Europe. She made her American orchestral debut with the Atlanta Symphony, just days after the announcement of her Gilmore Award. Since then she has appeared with the Cleveland Orchestra, the San Francisco, Toronto, St. Louis, Detroit, National, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Seattle, Vancouver, Puerto Rico, Utah, and Nashville symphonies, and the National Arts Centre Orchestra among others, as well as at the Mostly Mozart, Grant Park, Aspen, Ravinia, Blossom and Brevard summer festivals.

Equally busy as a recitalist, Ms. Fliter has performed in New York at Carnegie's Zankel Hall, the Metropolitan Museum, and the 92nd Street Y; at Chicago's Orchestra Hall; and in Boston, San Francisco, Vancouver, and Detroit, as well as for the Van Cliburn Foundation in Fort Worth. In Europe and Asia, Ms. Fliter has performed with orchestras and in recital in Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Frankfurt, Salzburg, Cologne, and Tokyo, and participated in festivals such as La Roque D'Antheron, Prague Autumn, and The World Pianist Series in Tokyo.

She has been teaching at the Imola International Academy "Incontri col Maestro" since the fall of 2015. In June 2013 Ms. Fliter recorded both Chopin concertos with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra/Jun Märkl for Linn Records, and in June 2014 she recorded the complete Chopin Preludes for the same label. Her two all-Chopin recordings for EMI earned her the reputation as one of the pre-eminent interpreters of that composer while her most recent EMI recording is an all-Beethoven CD featuring the Pathétique and Appassionata sonatas. Live recordings of Ms. Fliter performing works by Beethoven and Chopin at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam as well as a DVD of a recital at the Miami International Piano Festival are available on the VAI Audio label.

With a "scrupulous ear for instrumental color and blend" (Washington Post) and bringing "a distinctive dynamism to the podium" (Baltimore Sun), the 2017/18 season marks Hannu Lintu's fifth year as Chief Conductor of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Last season's highlights include a concert tour to Russia, with performances at the Moscow Conservatory, Vyborg's House of Culture and St Petersburg's Philharmonic Grand Hall, and a performance of Väin??Raitio's opera Princess Cecilia (the first in 80 years) at the Helsinki Festival – both part of celebrations marking 100 years of Finnish independence. On Independence Day (6 December 2017) the orchestra honours its 90th anniversary and 100-year-old Finland, premiering newly commissioned works by longtime FRSO collaborator Magnus Lindberg and Lotta Wennäkoski. Seven more premieres are scheduled throughout the season, along with performances of Bartók's Bluebeard's Castle and Beethoven's Fidelio among others. In March 2018 the FRSO tours Spain and Germany with cellist Sol Gabetta, taking in such venues as the Berlin Philharmonie and the Cologne Philharmonie.

Highlights of Lintu's 2017/18 season include returns to the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, Washington's National Symphony Orchestra, and the Dallas Symphony and Detroit Symphony orchestras. Lintu also makes his debut with the Naples Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony and Hiroshima Symphony orchestras. Recent engagements include the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, and the St Louis Symphony, Baltimore and Toronto Symphony orchestras, as well as three acclaimed European debuts: Staatsorchester Stuttgart Opera, Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien and NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester.

A regular in the pit, Lintu returns to the Savonlinna Opera Festival in July 2018 to conduct Verdi's Otello – in 2017 he conducted Aulis Sallinen's Kullervo as part of Finland's centenary celebrations. The Finnish National Opera and Ballet also honoured 100 years of independence in a special collaborative project with director/choreographer Tero Saarinen of Sibelius's Kullervo, with Lintu receiving rave reviews: "No other conductor – including several distinguished Sibelians – I have heard in this music has been quite so willing to show what makes [Kullervo] so original" (Opera Magazine, May 2017). Previous productions with Finnish National Opera include ParsifalCarmen, Sallinen's King Lear, and Wagner's Tristan und Isolde in spring 2016. Lintu has also worked with Tampere Opera and Estonian National Opera.

Hannu Lintu has made several recordings for Ondine, Naxos, Avie and Hyperion. His recording of selected works by Erkki-Sven Tüür (with Christoffer Sundqvist, Pekka Kuusisto and the FRSO) was released in February 2017; Prokofiev's Piano Concertos with Olli Mustonen, Mahler's Symphony No.1, and Messiaen's Turangalîla Symphony with Angela Hewitt and Valerie Hartmann-Claverie are among other recent releases. Lintu has received several accolades for his recordings, including a 2011 Grammy nomination for Best Opera CD, plus Gramophone Award nominations for his recordings of Enescu's Symphony No.2 with the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra and the Violin Concertos of Sibelius and Thomas Adès with Augustin Hadelich and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Hannu Lintu studied cello and piano at the Sibelius Academy, where he later studied conducting with Jorma Panula. He participated in masterclasses with Myung-Whun Chung at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, Italy, and took first prize at the Nordic Conducting Competition in Bergen in 1994.
