Editorial Reviews


“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


“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)
