Description

Published for the first time is the complete piano/vocal score for John Adams’s widely acclaimed nativity oratorio El Niño. This significant contemporary large-scale work features a libretto based on original sources arranged by Peter Sellars and John Adams, showcasing Latin American poetry fit with verses from the King James Bible, among other gospel texts. The work was first performed on December 15, 2000 at Theatre du Châtelet, Paris, France by Deutsches Symphonie-Orchestra, London Voices, and Maîtrise de Paris, conducted by Kent Nagano, and directed by Peter Sellars. Hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, a commercial recording is available on Nonesuch Records.
