Happy Birthday, John Adams

A very happy birthday to John Coolidge Adams, who turns 73 today. The clip above, City Noir, is one of the pieces on the program when Adams guest conducts the Seattle Symphony in April. He’ll also present Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes, his brilliant new piano concerto, with Jeremy Denk as the fiendish soloist.

(I haven’t noticed yet whether Sony Classical has sent out a message celebrating “the composer of Become Ocean.”)
