Paavo Järvi & Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich - John Adams - All Music


John Adams served a stint as composer-in-residence at the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, and it is certain that the performances here, though directed by Paavo Järvi, reflect a good deal of his own thinking about how these works should be performed. The album offers an attractive collection of pieces, all important in Adams' compositional development yet not terribly common on concert programs, and it testifies to the growth in Adams' international reputation.

... it is really a release that belongs in any Adams library.
