John Luther Adams

One of the most original musical thinkers of the new century. — Alex Ross, The New Yorker


His music becomes more than a metaphor for natural forces: it is an elemental experience in its own right. — Tom Service, The Guardian


His music perfectly echoes the landscape he loves:impersonal, relentless, larger than human scale, yet gorgeous,a quiet chaos of colors, suffused with light. It’s not a climateeveryone could live in. But for those who want to bathe theirears in an aural aurora borealis while staying warm inside, it’sa spiritual odyssey well worth taking. — Kyle Gann, Chamber Music Magazine
