AQR Special Feature John Luther Adams
Alaska Quarterly Review‘s Fall/Winter 2015 issue includes an incredible special feature, “They Were My People” by John Luther Adams. AQR introduces the seventy-five page section: “Drawn from his upcoming memoir Silences So Deep: A Memoir of Music and Alaska, Pulitzer Prize and Grammy-winning composer John Luther Adams writes about his music and deep friendship with Gordon Wright and John Haines. They were for him ‘larger-than-life figures’ and ‘the embodiment of Alaska.’” Adams also shares photos and the score for “Mountains Without End” from A Northern Suite and “How the Sun Came to the Forest” from Forest Without Leaves. Alaska Quarterly Review has generously made this entire feature available online for readers to enjoy.
