About

Conceived and realized in partnership with Q2 Musicís Peabody award-winning podcast Meet the Composer, Splitting Adams is Alarm Will Soundís tribute to American composer John Adams, and in particular to his works Chamber Symphony (1992) and Son of Chamber Symphony (2007).

Presented with commentary tracks from MTCís host Nadia Sirota, Alarm Will Soundís artistic director Alan Pierson, and the composer himself, the podcast-plus-performance conveys a rare sense of interaction for the listener; not only does the music, rendered in all its lush detail by the 17 musicians in AWS, capture and connect the long trajectory between the two works, but the commentary also shines a revealing light on the story behind the music.

Meet the Composer with host Nadia Sirota takes listeners into the minds and creative processes of the composers making some of the most innovative, compelling and breathtakingly beautiful music today. At the convergence of interview, music and sound design, Meet the Composer aims to show the listener who the composer is as a person, as a thinker and as an artist.
