Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you are interested in Adams’s music, or might want to be, or just want to know something about a serious, contemporary American composer, this book is necessary.”—Fanfare

Review

“John Luther Adams has created some of the most vast sounding and beautiful music I’ve ever heard. It is wonderful to read such an eloquent range of musicians attesting to the wide impact of JLA’s art and approach to music making.” (Richard Reed Parry, Arcade Fire)|“John Luther Adams has fashioned a music that is both of and about the world that we live in. The Farthest Place is an invaluable contribution to our understanding of Adams’s oeuvre, shedding generous light upon art, craft and spirit in equal measure.” (Steve Smith, music editor, Time Out New York)|“This book’s essays collectively offer a wide-angled view – the only effective way of looking at a composer who works on big ideas, even in his smallest, most intimate pieces.” (John Schaefer, Soundcheck, WNYC)|“The Farthest Place is a wonderful companion to Adams's music and thought…as unusual and indispensable as the artist that provoked it.” (Pauline Oliveros, composer)
