The Music of John Adams

Synopsis

With the composer conducting, pianist Jeremy Denk tangles with John Adams’ Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?, a funky and diabolically tricky piano concerto. Partly inspired by films produced in Hollywood during the late forties, Adams’ City Noir moves between restless pockets of energy and surging, cinematic melodies.
