Tuesday Tunes - 04/04/17

Beaumont Music Department presents Tuesday Tunes; weekly recommendations for all audiences, curated by the Beaumont Music staff.

Recommendations for this week:


John Luther Adams - Become Ocean


An orchestral composition by John Luther Adams (not the arguably more well-known John Adams from last week) from me this week. This single-movement work won a Pulitzer Prize and a Grammy in 2014. It is a sublime piece, perfect for the end of a long term. Inspired by the oceans of Alaska, it is an immersive work that needs to be played through good speakers or headphones. Enjoy.

With the advent of this lovely weather (long may it continue), this always makes me turn to Brahms' String Sextet in B flat major. The opening texture really makes me think of the trees blossoming and the sun emerging from the clouds.  Lush.
