American Berserk

1 segments
Taking his cue from author Philip Roth, composer John Adams hints at the darker, manic edge of American life in his virtuoso work for piano, American Berserk. Adams characterizes the work as follows: "Influences of American jazz and bop playing mixed with impressions of Conlon Nancarrow's disjunct rhythmic world dominate the writing of this short, manic, bipolar scherzo."
