In terms of the scale of his compositions, John Adams' career is somewhat anomalous for a contemporary composer. While the usual pattern tends to be for a composer to begin a career writing smaller pieces (which have a far likelier chance of being performed) and then expanding to larger forms as his or her reputation grows, Adams (with very few exceptions) was writing large-scale operas and orchestral and choral works starting in the early '80s and didn't begin devoting himself to chamber music with any regularity until the mid-'90s.

Deutsche Grammophon have recently released the ASQ Migration album of their works for the quintet genre, which was first forged during the so-called Baroque period of music (1600 – 1750). At the time, mastering the string quartet for any young musician was basically a prerequisite for being recognised as a serious composer evident in publications of the era. No doubt you and your friends and family will be warmed considerably by the music played on both the album and the tour with Slava Grigoryan and the Australian String Quartet. Being there means you will enjoy a penultimate experience first hand.
