John Adams conducts John Adams

John Adams is one of the best-known composers of minimal music – although on occasion he mixes it with a decidedly melodious, sometimes almost late-Romantic tonal language. In the 2016/17 season, Adams was the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Composer in Residence and made his debut conducting the orchestra in this concert. The programme included his famous Harmonielehre and the violin concerto Scheherazade.2 with soloist Leila Josefowicz.
