John Luther Adams:

1 Everything that Rises (2017)

The composer writes: 'Everything That Rises, my fourth quartet ... grows out of Sila: The Breath of the World - a performance-length choral-orchestral work composed on a rising series of sixteen harmonic clouds. Everything That Rises traverses this same territory, but in a much more melodic way. Each musician is a soloist, playing throughout. They surround the audience. Time floats. Over the course of an hour, the lines spin out - always rising - in acoustically perfect intervals that grow progressively smaller as they spiral upward ... until the music dissolves into the soft noise of the bows, sighing.'

Recorded July-October 2017 at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Banff, Alberta, Canada
