Album Review
Reviewed 2004-07-27 
Classical composer Adams has a variable commitment
to minimalism. 2 1977 and some recent pieces
of mostly piano modern music. Complex rhythms and
harmonic richness. Half as minimal as Glass.

1) rolling piano/violin groove repeats
2) meditative piano/violin
*3) fast rhythmicly profound
4) fast interplay of pianos
5) easy & rich, Kieth Jarrett haunts it
*6) busy part, alternations
7) relaxing beauty piece
8) energetic and all over the place
9) quieter rolling piano, sometimes loud
10) sweet meditation
*11) Glassean minimalism, ebbs and swells excitingly
