The Farthest Place: The Music of John Luther Adams
Northeastern University Press, 2012
The Farthest Place, the first book-length study of JLA’s work, includes essays by Alex Ross, Kyle Gann, Steven Schick, Glenn Kotche and other prominent musicians and scholars.
“John Luther Adams inspires us not only to listen more attentively, but to be more aware of the world in which we live. This … book … should not only be on the shelves of everyone interested in the music of our time but also anyone interested in being alive.” – Frank J. Oteri
Adams's swelling orchestral work may be the loveliest apocalypse in musical history. - Alex Ross, New Yorker
