Thomas Adès The Tempest now on record

Almost five years after its premiere, Thomas Adès opera, The Tempest, is now available in a recording from EMI of a 2007 performance that included much of the original cast. Adès himself conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. $20.99 on CD from Amazon. $15.99 downloadable on iTunes. The recording has been named Gramophone magazine's August CD of the month. Alex Ross's fairly ecstatic review of the original production here.
