Adams: Nixon in China (CD)

Item #: 522612

Quick Overview

This is a reissue of the Grammy Award Winning recording of Nixon in China. The 1988 Grammy Award Winner, John Adams, describes this landmark as "part epic, part satire, part parody of political posturing, and part serious examination of historical, philosophical, and even gender issues." The Boston Globe called the Grammy-winning 1987 work "a milestone in American operatic history." This first recording, featuring the original cast, says Los Angeles Times music critic Mark Swed, "has an eloquence not since matched, with terrific packaging and Michael Steinberg's program notes, which really are a revelation."
