    One of the most beautiful and spiritual works ever written. There is a true depth here. A deep understanding of the universe and musics relation to it. Adams has tapped in to something. And the world deserves to experience its aura.

  • August 08, 2002 Phrygian Gates

    "Phrygian Gates" is probably my favorite 20th century piano work. John Adams does an outstanding job using minimalist techniques to create a lush harmonic and rythmic texture. There is also quite a range of emotions. From delicate to bombastic to dark to dramatic, Adams never fails to please the listener...

    . This is definatly not a piece for the amataur pianist. First off, it's very technically demanding, and also long and hard to memorize (~26 minutes, 64 pages, 1050+ measures). However, Adams did write a similar piece called "China Gates." It's just as enjoyable and much less technically demanding.
