Century rolls ; Lollapalooza ; Slonimsky's earbox by John Adams( Recording )

12 editions published in 2000 in 4 languages and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the so-called minimalists working today, John Adams is the only one with any good ideas left. Witness this delightful release. The key to Adams's creativity is that he isn't bound by theoretical constraints on what "minimalism" should be. Century Rolls (1995) is a commission by Emanuel Ax, and it was inspired by the composer's listening to a CD recording of an ancient player piano. Century Rolls doesn't duplicate that sound, but it is, instead, an unexpected romp across new rhythmic territory. As for Mr. Ax, he comports himself very well, particularly in the difficult first Movement, which requires deft coordination of all forces involved. The brief Lollapalooza (1995) is more recognizably minimalist but with considerable orchestral color and shifting moods. And Slominsky's Earbox (1996) is a powerfully full-orchestra-driven canter. All this is to say that the CD is one of the best releases of Adams's career, and it will appeal to a very wide audience. --Paul Cook

The Death of Klinghoffer by John Adams( Recording )

31 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La muerte de Klinghoffer es contada en un estilo muy diferente que las anteriores óperas de Adams. Aunque se basen en hechos históricos, Klinghoffer no siempre los trata de una forma narrativa tradicional, y los acontecimientos que vemos no son siempre los esperados. Varios acontecimientos importantes de la narrativa histórica - incluyendo la muerte de Klinghoffer de sí mismo - no se ven en el escenario, pero sólo un comentario a posteriori. Además, muchos de los personajes cantan sus versiones de la acción como recuerdos, como por ejemplo en el aria de apertura del capitán: "Fue justo después de 1:15" que narra la apariencia original de los secuestradores a bordo. Mientras tanto, cada escena termina con una serie en la que el coro reflexiona sobre los acontecimientos que han ocurrido. La ópera comienza con un preludio que consiste de dos de estos coros, una cantada por un coro de los palestinos exiliados y la otra por un coro de Judios exiliado
