There is no connection between the John Luther Adams discussed here, born in 1953, and the famous minimalist composer John Coolidge Adams, born in 1947. Presented here is John Luther Adams’ fourth string quartet Everything that Rises; for the record, the composer received the very prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2014 – a prize previously awarded to Copland, Ives, Hanson, Thompson, Menotti, Barber, Carter, Crumb, Rorem, Corigliano, Gould and many others. He himself describes his music style as ”profoundly influenced by the natural world. By listening deeply to the subtle resonances of the northern soundscape, I try to explore the territory of 'sonic geography', that region between place and culture, between environment and imagination.": a worthy programme, no doubt, and it’s true that listening to his Quartet conveys an impression of large open spaces, and the continuous use of intervals from the natural scale – i.e. notes as they are created by the natural harmonic resonance of sounding bodies, generating intervals rather removed from what we are used to with the well-tempered scale – successfully erases any reference to even the most avant-garde classical harmony. Furthermore, the piece plays in one go totaling about one hour rather than being split into tracks, which the partition doesn’t really allow, but a savvy label would have found a way around it, if only at arbitrary spots in the most strategic moments! Because such moments are numerous! The listener has therefore no choice but to listen from end to end and let themselves be hypnotised. © SM/Qobuz

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.
