News & Reviews

  • We Are Who We Are, a new series from Luca Guadagnino, the director of Call Me By Your Name and I Am Love, premieres on HBO and HBO Max tonight. As with many of Guadagnino's projects, the new show features several recordings by composer John Adams, starting with a selection from his 1995 song play I Was Looking At the Ceiling and Then I Saw the Sky on tonight's episode, and more in the weeks ahead.

  • John Adams's 2007 piece Doctor Atomic Symphony was given a live score reading with conductor David Robertson and other members of the Juilliard faculty and musicians, hosted by Adams's publisher, Boosey & Hawkes. The participants commented in real time as pages from the score went by, set to a 2018 live concert recording of the Juilliard Orchestra conducted by the composer himself. You can watch it here. Nonesuch released the premiere recording of Doctor Atomic Symphony in 2009, performed by Robertson and the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra.
