Description - Hallelujah Junction by John Adams
John Adams is one of the most admired and performed living composers. A musician of enormous range and technical command, he has built a huge audience world-wide through the immediacy and sincerity of his music. Hallelujah Junction isn't so much an autobiography as a fascinating journey through the musical landscape of his life and times, centred around the three highly controversial operas based on social and political issues he has written in the past 25 years - Nixon in China, The Death of Klinghoffer and, most recently, Dr Atomic.
Witty, warm and wise - and above all illuminating - this book is a an ideal introduction for those not yet familiar with his music and a must for all his many fans.
