John Adams at 70 Reviews

Reviews from John Adams at 70, at the Barbican on 25 February 2017

The Guardian

"Conducted by Benjamin Shwartz, it was all very well played, from the manic, cartoony scramble of the Chamber Symphony to the highly textured eclecticism of Grand Pianola Music."

Classical Source

"The playing immediately captured the delicate and complex soundworlds evoked in ‘Mongrel Airs’"

The Financial Times

"Britten Sinfonia and conductor Benjamin Schwartz made light of the score’s reputed technical difficulties."
