Programme Note

John Luther Adams, winner of a Pulitzer Prize for Music, presents the London premiere of his new orchestral soundscape.

'John Luther Adams is, for want of a better word, a classical composer who does immersive pieces. The players are all around you. The piece, the music, is a world that you step into. I think it's incredible. It turned my head around about what music and performance of music could be.' (David Byrne)

Across the Distance is the latest in a continuing series of works intended for performance outdoors.

The horn players begin in a central location and over the course of the piece move farther and farther out into the surrounding cityscape. Listeners may choose to follow the musicians or to sit in one place and listen as the music recedes into the distance.

' of the most original musical thinkers of the new century' (Alex Ross, The New Yorker)
