Hail Bop! A Portrait of John Adams by Tony Palmer / Edo De Waart [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

He is the most performed composer of his generation. His operas 'Nixon in China' and 'The Death of Klinghoffer' have been international hits, although not without a touch of controversy. This is an intimate portrait, filmed over twelve months, of a great composer at work in his High Sierra log cabin and in rehearsal with soloists Emanuel Ax and Michael Collins. The dramatic landscapes of America, which Adams brings to life so vividly in his music, provide the visual backdrop. Contributors include stage director Peter Sellars and librettist Alice Goodman. Music by Edo de Waart and the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic has been specially recorded for the film.
