Short Rides with John Adams

Among contemporary composers, John Adams is one of the great genre-crossing artists: his music impresses with incredible complexity, but at the same time conveys an unbounded energy that leaves no-one unaffected. In the 2016/17 season, Adams was Artist in Residence with the Berliner Philharmoniker. Our documentary Short Rides with John Adams follows this exciting transatlantic collaboration.
