The Wind in High Places
Label: Cold Blue
Released: January 13, 2015
Catalog Num: CB0041

John Luther Adams’s carefully shaped, gracefully stirring pieces on this album, which New York Times critic Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim called "mesmerizing," seem to alter common notions of musical time and unfold in a temporal space of their own creation, as do so many of Adams’s works.

Beautiful, vaporous string music, featuring the acclaimed JACK Quartet performing the three-movement The Wind in High Places and Dream of the Canyon Wren (Adams's first two works written solely for string quartet) and the Northwestern Cello Ensemble, directed by Hans Jensen, performing the four-movement cello choir work Canticles of the Sky.
