Pre-Concert Talk

John Adams explains his music philosophy

John Adams, the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Composer in Residence, will provide insights into his creative process at this pre-concert talk. For the American composer, minimalism, the style of which Adams is a representative, has always served an emotional musical language that grows in a targeted way. He will explain his music philosophy using one of his key works: the enchanting piece Hallelujah Junction, performed by Majella Stockhausen and Holger Groschopp.
