John Adams discusses 'I Still Dance'
Seeded by sfsymphony on 20 Sep 2019
Author: San Francisco Symphony
John Adams has been associated with the San Francisco Symphony since 1979 but a fresh phase was launched a quarter-century ago with the appointment of Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas, who embraced the legacy and future potential of American mavericks. The brief new piece being introduced on this program, I Still Dance, was composed by Adams in honor of this final, 25th season of MTT’s tenure. It celebrates “the continued youthful vitality” of MTT himself, as well as of his husband, Joshua Robison. I Still Dance sustains an explosive, relentless intensity from the first downbeat through most of its span. Concerts at Davies Symphony Hall September 19-22, 2019.
