Seattle Symphony Salutes John Luther Adams
Composer John Luther Adams, whose deeply-rooted relationship with the environment inspires much of his work, premiered his orchestral masterpiece Become Ocean in 2013 at the Seattle Symphony, with Ludovic Morlot at the baton. And not only did the groundbreaking work go on to win a Grammy and the Pulitzer Prize, but it also inspired pop star Taylor Swift to donate $50k to the orchestra. Now, Maestro Morlot and the SSO visit Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall with the California premiere of the much-anticipated sequel, Become Desert, accompanied by guest artists Volti San Francisco. You'll also enjoy Sibelius' folk-influenced Symphony No. 2 as part of Saturday night's program. Sunday afternoon's water-themed concert opens with Sibelius' The Oceanides, continues with Four Sea Interludes and Passacaglia from Britten's Peter Grimes and comes to a climax with the work that started it all: Adams' Become Ocean.
