Tribute to John Adams

Saturday, July 23, 2011, 8:00 pm
Hunter Center
$24 / Day pass $35 includes afternoon talk and gallery recital

The New Yorker calls him “the most vital and eloquent composer in America” and his opera, Nixon in China, was recently revived at the Met this spring to rave reviews. Bang on a Can devotes a full day to saluting Massachusetts-born composer John Adams starting with an afternoon talk with Bang on a Can co-founder David Lang followed by a gallery recital and capping it off with an evening concert in including Adams’ Gnarly Buttons, his tuneful and lush masterwork for strings, Shaker Loops, the explosive electro-acoustic large ensemble work Scratchband, his early experimental hit, American Standard, in which Adams merges kaleidoscopically the minimalism of Riley and Reich with America's great tradition of vernacular songs, marches, and Protestant. Late Night at MASS MoCA: Galleries are open until 7:30 for this performance!
