News & Reviews

  • John Adams has joined the faculty of the Royal Academy of Music in London as a Visiting Professor. In 2012, Adams conducted concerts at Lincoln Center and the BBC Proms in which Academy students performed alongside Juilliard School players; in 2015, the Academy gave him an Honorary Doctorate. As part of his new role, he returns to the Academy in 2017 to work with opera students, instrumentalists, and composers. "I'm proud and delighted to spend time with the very talented students of the Royal Academy of Music," he says. "I'll be able to spend time with the young composers, singers and instrumentalists in a relationship that is as fruitful for me as it hopefully will be for the students."

  • Celebrations of John Adams's 70th birthday, which began in fall 2016, continue through 2017 with major festivities taking place in the composer's native California, organized around his birthday on February 15, and throughout the winter and spring in New York, Chicago, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, and more.

  • About This Album

    2004 Grammy Winner

    This Pulitzer Prize– and Grammy Award–winning piece, a New York Philharmonic and Lincoln Center's Great Performers co-commission, was written in honor of the heroes and in memory of the victims of the attacks of September 11, 2001. It was made possible with the generous support of a longtime New York family. The Atlantic Monthly called the piece “a breakthrough” with “something unique to say to a wide public”; London’s Independent dubbed it “imperative listening.”
