John Luther Adams - Ten Thousand Birds

October 4, 2021

The culmination of an effort that began in Spring 2020 following the complete shutdown of all in-person rehearsals and performances, this recording of the John Luther Adams work Ten Thousand Birds features the Contemporary Music Ensemble, co-directed by Alan Pierson and Ben Bolter. John Luther Adams writes of the birdsong-inspired work, "In this music, time is not measured. Each page in the score will be its own self-contained world that occupies its own physical space and its own time."

In 2010, the Bienen School awarded John Luther Adams the Michael Ludwig Nemmers Prize in Music Composition.
