Description
One of the most respected and also the most accessible of contemporary composers, John Adams "has won his eminence fair and square: he has aimed high, he has addressed life as it is lived now, and he has found a language that makes sense to a wide audience" (The New Yorker). Here Adams relates his life story, from his childhood to his early studies in classical composition, from his minimalist innovations and his "docu-operas" like Nixon in China to the experience of working with such colleagues as John Cage, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass.

"Charming and illuminating.... Hallelujah Junction stands with books by Hector Berlioz and Louis Armstrong among the most readably incisive autobiographies of major musical figures."NYTBR
