Alan Gilbert marks the 70th birthday of the great American composer John Adams with Absolute Jest, a riff on Beethoven (especially some notable “scherzos,” the “jest” of the title), and the exhilarating and popular Harmonielehre. This compelling fusion of minimalism and late Romanticism — pulsing rhythms, big chords, and shimmering textures — creates an unforgettable musical journey.

Genre:  Classical Music / Symphony
