The John Adams Edition

During the 2016/2017 season, John Adams accompanied the Berliner Philharmoniker as their Composer in Residence. John Adams’s role in the course of his residency with the Philharmoniker was not only as a composer, but also as a conductor. The orchestra gave acclaimed concert performances of both well-known works and exciting new discoveries - and these are now available in an exclusive edition on CD and Blu-ray. The many extra features of this lavishly produced hardcover edition also deserve a mention: all recordings are on CD and as videos on Blu-ray, plus there is a comprehensive booklet and a documentary film about John Adams’s time in Berlin. Other conductors also appear in this edition: Gustavo Dudamel with the atmospheric nocturnal scene City Noir, Alan Gilbert with the exhilarating miniatures Short Ride in a Fast Machine and Lollapalooza, and Kirill Petrenko who performs the poignant lament The Wound-Dresser with baritone Georg Nigl.
