After listening to John Adams all night while on the Computer, I have come to realise the enormous talent he has - he is, to me, a modern day Gershwin! His pulsating beat drive through his music, almost impossible not to tap your foot to. 'The Chairman Dances', a Foxtrot for Orchestra is a classic example of his music, absoloutely brilliant. Of course, 'A Short Ride in a Fast Machine', probably his most famous work, shows the same domination of the down-beat, almost demonic and relentless, it's always there! 'Loops and Verses' is equally stunning! The only music of his I'm not too keen on, is his operatic works (u know, with the singing) But that's just coz I'm not a fan of Opera. Does anyone here have a fav John Adams work and why?
