One of the things I did on my hiatus from Tumblr was go see “Nixon in China,” composed by John Adams, at the Metropolitan Opera.
It was a really amazing experience and I was even lucky enough to go backstage and meet the composer! Being a major Lit nerd, and not so much experienced with music, this was cool, but I felt odd not having much to say besides “I’m a fan!” But oh well! No regrets.
If you’re into minimalist music (think Philip Glass) than the recording is certainly worth checking out. What could be bad about added another 3+ hours of beautiful music to your library?
