John Luther Adams: Become Nature

Chamber Music Northwest and the Oregon Bach Festival present the world premiere of a new work for percussion ensemble by one of the most lauded living American composers.


His music perfectly echoes the landscape he loves: impersonal, relentless, larger than human scale, yet gorgeous, a quiet chaos of colors, suffused with light.
