St. Lawrence String Quartet Chamber Music Seminar: A Conversation With John Adams

The St. Lawrence String Quartet launches their Summer Chamber Music Seminar with a conversation with world-renowned composer John AdamsThe SLSQ, who have commissioned works by Adams, will perform live excerpts to accompany the discussion.
Composer, conductor, and creative thinker John Adams occupies a unique position in the world of American music. His works, both operatic and symphonic, stand out among contemporary classical compositions for their depth of expression, brilliance of sound, and the profoundly humanist nature of their themes. Over the past 25 years, Adams’s music has played a decisive role in turning the tide of contemporary musical aesthetics away from academic modernism and toward a more expansive, expressive language, entirely characteristic of his New World surroundings.
