After devoting two critically commended recordings of Portraits, to Philip Glass and Arvo Part, Angele Dubeau & La Pieta is now boldly launching itself into the universe of John Adams. Considered by many as the most fundamentally American contemporary composer, Adams knows how to meld the worlds of classical, popular and contemporary music perfectly. To shed light on the composer's multiple facets, the works chosen cover several decades of composition and were written for different ensembles: from the duo to the double quartet, and including the septet. We will be able to hear the emblematic Shaker Loops, a work that propelled him onto the international scene, the playful John's Alleged Books of Dances and Road Movies, a reconsidered sonata for violin and piano.
