Having earned his composing stripes after the 1960s, John Adams had the pioneering work of Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and Terry Riley close at hand as he ventured into his trade. And, while minimalism's historical continuum helps place Adams, he used Reich, Glass, and Riley (among others) only as a starting point. And here's proof: a 10-CD retrospective of nearly all Adams's recorded compositions on Nonesuch Records, the label that also issued Steve Reich 1965-1995 and Kronos Quartet: 25 Years. Adams's Harmonium, a choral work of startling energy and effervescence, appears here in a new recording, as do distillations of both The Death of Klinghoffer and Nixon in China, two path-clearing operas.

Violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen continues her series of concerto recordings on Signum with two contrasting works by American composers. Already considered by many to be a modern classic, John Adams 1993 Violin Concerto was described by the composer as having a hypermelody , in which the soloist plays longs phrases without stop for the duration of the 35 minute piece. Although composed in 1949, the first performance of Roy Harris s Violin Concerto didn t occur until 1984. Since then it has been championed for its 'luminous orchestration and exalted tone'. For this recording Tamsin Waley-Cohen is joined by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under American conductor Andrew Litton.

Nonesuch Records releases the debut recording of American composer John Adams' Scheherazade.2, a new dramatic symphony for violin and orchestra. The recording features David Robertson and the St. Louis Symphony and virtuoso violinist Leila Josefowicz, for whom the piece was written. The piece was informed both by the Rimsky-Korsakov piece "Scheherazade," from which it draws its name, as well as the "Arabian Nights" collection of folk stories.

Their Warner Classics debut makes clear that Christina & Michelle Naughton show great imagination in their programming: Messiaen's mystical and epic Visions de l'Amen, composed during World War II, appears alongside John Adams' boisterous and percussive Hallelujah Junction, inspired by a truck stop on the border of Nevada and California. The CD is completed with J.S. Bach's serenely moving Gotttes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit, BWV 106, in an arrangement by the contemporary Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag.
