John Luther Adams’s ‘Sila’: New work occupies Lincoln Center plaza

by Anne Midgette
July 27, 2014

“The world premiere of John Luther Adams’s “Sila: The Breath of the World” Friday night at New York’s Lincoln Center had the visual aesthetic of a music video, the vibe of a cultural Happening — some 2,500 people congregated on Hearst Plaza, between the Metropolitan Opera and 65th Street, to watch — and the sound of Richard Wagner as channeled by John Cage. In short, the piece — by the winner of this year’s Pulitzer Prize for Music, a follow-up to his percussion piece “Inuksuit” — spoke in a number of familiar languages to make statements whose outlines are familiar to most cultural consumers but that still, in the classical music world, smack of the new.”
