  • About This Album

    The New York Times praised the “freewheeling violin and piano work” of Adams’s “traveling music.” The Oakland Tribune says the other piano-based pieces collected here “thrillingly exhibit the kinetic rhythmic excitement that always placed Adams above the so-called minimalists.”
