Music of Landscape and Sculpture

September 5, 2020

In August of 2019, composer John Luther Adams and the New York based JACK Quartet delivered an inspired performance at Tippet Rise, which included the composer’s first string quartet, The Wind In High Places, and the fifth string quartet, Lines Made By Walking. The latter is a Tippet Rise commission, written for the JACK Quartet, and as the composer says, “This music evolved slowly at three miles an hour over this beautiful terrain.”
