The Summer of Darkness has come and gone but the thirst for noir still remains.
My Dad recently told me about a piece of music written by modern American composer John Adams. I have liked some of Adams’ other works so I thought I would give this one a try, especially after my Dad told me that the piece was meant to be part of a soundtrack to an imaginary film noir. I listened to it and definitely felt the influence of noir on his work, and decided to share it with all of you. I think that you’ll enjoy this piece, even if you aren’t usually a fan of modern classical music. Here is an article about Adams’ more recent saxophone concerto (2104) which was inspired by City Noir (2009).
Without further ado…City Noir.
