GABRIELLA SMITH Tumblebird Contrails
JOHN ADAMS Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?
JEAN SIBELIUS Symphony No. 1
John Adams conducts a work that has bewitched him since he was a teenager: the windswept landscapes of Sibelius’ First Symphony. Jeremy Denk brings intelligence and wit to Adams’ funky piano concerto, Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes? And Gabriella Smith’s Tumblebird Contrails captures the sounds of the Pacific: gulls, surf, the sizzle of sand and foam.
