The Crossing

Acclaimed by the New York Times as “an alluring, mystical new work” when it premiered outdoors at the city’s Lincoln Center in July 2014, John Luther Adams’ large-scale Sila: the Breath of the World is so carefully orchestrated that the recording itself pushes the limits of how to capture multiple ensembles of musicians in one setting. Thanks to modern technology and the magic of multi-tracking (with producers Doug Perkins and Nathaniel Reichman at the controls), Sila maintains the composer’s vision as a grandinvitation to the listener “to stop and listen more deeply.”

John Luther Adams’s music is like nobody else’s…57 minutes, the work’s gradual transformations in pitch and mood happen imperceptibly, moving from deeply sonorous rumbles to celestial shimmers. With a stellar line-up of performers and crystal-clear recording quality, this is a profoundly arresting album. — BBC Music Magazine, December 2022, 5 out of 5 stars
