John Adams
Shaker Loops

Recorded in 2017, the NZSO with Conductor Laureate Edo de Waart present two works from American composer John Adams. Short Ride in A Fast Machine is an exhilarating fantasy, with the orchestra speeding through nuanced changes in the harmonic landscape. Shaker Loops is a piece of great minimalist architecture – a single idea exploded to encompass lightness and darkness, detail and expansiveness, wrapped in music that simply thrills.
