  • Composer and conductor John Adams spoke with France Musique for a thirty-minute tête-à-tête in English during a trip to conduct Orchestre Symphonique de Radio France in concert earlier this year. The conversation covers his music, musical influences, current events, current social trends, Kendrick Lamar, and some of his favorite pieces by Debussy, Stravinsky, and more. You can watch it here.

  • The Los Angeles Philharmonic has announced its 2020–21 season, and among the artists performing at Walt Disney Concert Hall are John Adams, Joshua Redman, and Brad Mehldau. The season also brings performances of several works by Adams, including his operas Nixon in China and Girls of the Golden West, and by Louis Andriessen (De Staat), Steve Reich, Timo Andres, and Nico Muhly.
