"Everything That Rises" is a uniquely beautiful and magical hour of music for string quartet, performed by the celebrated, award-winning JACK Quartet. The composer writes about the piece: "Each musician is a soloist, playing throughout. Time floats and 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." "'Everything That Rises' is art without artifice, and it's beauty transports the listener." (New York Classical Review) "'Everything That Rises" finds Mr. Adams exploring dissonance and just-intonation tuning, in the gentlest of ways." (The New York Times) "JACK Quartet, superheroes of the new music world." (Boston Globe) John Luther Adams, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in Music and the 2015 Grammy for Best Contemporary Classical Composition, has been described by The New Yorker's Alex Ross as "one of the most original musical thinkers of the new century." Adams, whose music is deeply rooted in the natural world, has worked with many prominent performers and venues.
