John Adams’ vast and varied output has earned him a wide audience, uncommon among contemporary classical composers. The works on this disc span his entire career to date, and illustrate his many different styles of writing for the piano. Phrygian Gates and China Gates – “gate” here referring to a type of electronic switch – could be regarded as his first “minimal” works, but are more tonal and expressive than the music of his contemporaries such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass.

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.

Label: Signum Records

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.

Label: Delphian | Tracks: 24 | Rls.date: 2016

In 2002 Simon Smith made his recording debut on Delphian in a disc of James MacMillans complete piano music, paired with Stuart MacRaes Piano Sonata. Recordings of music by Hafliði Hallgrímsson and Thomas Wilson have followed. In this new, substantial outing Smith turns from music-making in Scotland to another of his lifelong loves, the music of Alfred Schnittke. This two-disc set comprises Schnittkes entire published output for solo piano (including one piece for piano duet and another for six hands at one keyboard). The Russian composers music often makes gargantuan demands of the player. Smiths astonishing dynamic palette and heartfelt musicality combine here to stunning effect.
