CD Reviews

Permanently altered state of musical awareness
Thomas M. Brod, MD | Los Angeles, CA USA | 10/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When New Albion records brought out the LP Light Over Water by John Adams in 1983, I was flipped into a new sonic world. "Flipped"? Well, it is transcendant music, and I experienced a new emergent state of mind from which I still get a contact high (and there was no external substance involved!).

What's especially interesting about this early piece (Adams has called it, "My forgotten [master]piece") is that it beautifully establishes John Adams' unique musical vocabulary/sytax/style that can be discerned in nearly all of his subsequent work--all the way through the recent (2003/5) 2nd violin concerto, entitled Dharma At Big Sur."
More Major Minimalism
Daniel G. Berk | West Bloomfield, Michigan | 01/17/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These are two more fine works by minimalist composer John Adams. If one appreciates Adams' style of composition, this CD is well worth acquiring."
