John Adams conductor
Dawn Upshaw soprano
London Symphony Orchestra

‘Only a brave, or foolhardy, composer sets about re-orchestrating Debussy’ said Gramophone magazine, yet John Adams did just that to great effect with Debussy’s early songs. His own Harmonielehre (‘study of harmony’) is inspired by a dream of a gigantic super-tanker taking off from the surface of San Francisco Bay. Bartok’s Dance Suites are six traditional Hungarian Dances, witty, melodic, jovial and carefree.
