“The birds were my teachers,” says composer John Luther Adams, whose music is a natural extension of his long-time environmental activism. Birds have inspired composers from Mozart to Messiaen; in Adams’ case, it was hearing the song of a wood thrush for the first time that set him on his path as a composer inspired by the beauty and majesty of the natural world.
