Chief Conductor Alexander Prior says of John Adams’ astounding Harmonielehre: “It is inspired by the era of rock ’n’ roll, by the most hard-core side of jazz, and by the sounds of the technological era we live in. The music is mesmerizingly hypnotic, and you will find yourself wanting to jump out of your seat and reach for the sky. Seldom will you come across a piece as relevant, youthful, and yet eternal.” Also featured is Jalons, the first-ever work by Iannis Xenakis performed by the ESO.
