It began with a dream, says John Adams: ‘I saw a giant tanker sitting in San Francisco Bay. Suddenly, this huge mass of a ship just took off into space like a rocket.’ That vision of concentrated thrust was the inspiration for Harmonielehre. Locomotive and lyrical at the same time, music of the present day yet full of references to Mahler, Sibelius, Debussy and Barber, this is an unrivalled masterpiece of our time.
