Celebrating John Adams’ 70th birthday with his great opera choruses – Doctor Atomic, A Flowering Tree, The Death of Klinghoffer and The Gospel According to the Other Mary – paired with one of his very favorite works, Stravinsky’s raucous Les Noces (The Wedding).
Celebrate the 70th birthday of great American composer John Adams with a special performance of his most beloved opera choruses and one of his all-time favorite works that influenced him as a composer.
Publisher Boosey & Hawkes approached Artistic Director Grant Gershon to curate a collection of soon-to-be-released piano transcriptions of his popular opera choruses. Each will be featured with a different, virtuosic pianist to accompany the full chorus.
After the homage, all four pianists join special guest soloists and the Master Chorale for Stravinsky’s raucous Russian peasant wedding Les Noces, where young lovers are put through a series of unusual folk rituals before they finally say their “I do’s” amidst the drunken revelry.
