Temporarily, the BBC has streams of Proms concerts featuring Steve Reich and John Adams. In a BBC message board, someone suggests attendance was not all that great at the John Adams concert. Eric Owens singing The Wound-Dresser may be the highlight of the two concerts although My Father Knew Charles Ives is not yet out on CD.
Adams: The title, My Father Knew Charles Ives, may have been unconsciously suggested by that of a Morton Feldman of similarly challenged authenticity, I Met Heine on the Rue Fürstenberg. Carl Adams, my Massachusetts-born father, did not in fact know Charles Ives.
