Video of the Week: John Adams--Phrygian Gates

This week I'll post somebody else's music.  John Adams is one of my favorite living composers.  He's considered to be a minimalist composer, of which I find to be one of the most energetic.

This is one of his piano pieces.  It's a long one, but this performance (and visuals) by Ian Houghton is a good one, and I hope it will help introduce you to a new kind of music.
