“John Luther Adams has made a boldly experimental body of music that transcends the landscapes that have nurtured it. His compositions extend across time and space to generate their own gravity and sense of place. In our swiftly changing world, his music is an invitation to stillness, both a refuge and a reminder of all we stand to lose.” - American Academy of Arts and Letters

His music perfectly echoes the landscape he loves: impersonal, relentless, larger than human scale, yet gorgeous, a quiet chaos of colors, suffused with light. It’s not a climate everyone could live in. But for those who want to bathe their ears in an aural aurora borealis while staying warm inside, it’s a spiritual odyssey well worth taking. - Kyle Gann
