Abstract:The purpose of this study is to show two of composer Thomas Adès’ musical strengths: the consistency with which his work employs durational or intervalic succession, and the unification resulting from continuous motivic transformation. In this thesis, Adès' orchestral work 'America: A Prophecy' will be thoroughly discussed to show how the main concept of the work, opposition is expressed as well as how the music expresses its texts - the Mayan Chilam Balam and the Spanish La Guerra - at both dramatic and structural levels.
