Info for John Adams: Roll Over Beethoven

A duo of pianists from the London Symphony Orchestra’s percussion ensemble present the world premiere recording of Roll Over Beethoven by John Adams.Roll Over Beethoven pays homage to the electric vitality of Beethoven’s intensely physical, expressive world, and takes fragments from his Diabelli Variations and the Piano Sonata Opus 110 and transforms them in the unique black box of Adams’ own musical language. In only twenty short minutes, Adams manages to generate an absorbing structure that, in his words, ‘takes these tiny musical fractals through a grand tour of a harmonic and rhythmic hall of mirrors.
