Pulitzer Prize winner John Adams is considered one of America's greatest and most prolific living composers. Hailed by critics as a "Copland for the 21st century," he writes music inspired by the wide open spaces of the American West.

Creators at Carnegie presents a concert of musical landscapes from Carnegie Hall's own composer-in-residence, John Adams.
