Adams: The Dharma at Big Sur/My Father Knew Charles Ives
"...a splendid addition to the John Adams discography...Dharma at Big Sur is a concerto for electric violin. It begins by evoking the West's sun and easy living, but this is more than a musical piece of nature-painting. It rambles ambiently for a while before landing in an Indian raga, jazzy mode and ends with a type of heavenly good-naturedness...The other work, presented on a second CD...is My Father Knew Charles Ives, which...pays homage to some of Ives's music...but more than that, in its various sections...it evokes the nature of New England as picturesquely as Ives does, and parallels Adams's California in Dharma. A pair of fascinating works, at times a bit thorny, but well worth it."
