Customer Reviews

Inreresting piece...appropriate.

Thank goodness Boolez is around writing reviews for every release on itunes. Clearly has plenty of time alone in a room by himself. And with a name like Boolez, you can understand his incredible historical insight about triadic music. What a mind! Doctor Atomic Symphony is a good suite from the very long opera. Having seen the opera at the Met last year, the opera could use a bit of editing. However, its essence and its strongest music exist here. "Batter My Heart" is one of the high-points in recent operatic history. Oppenheimer's vocal line is given to the trumpet here. It's all a very nice evocation of the opera, but probably best exists as a suite to recall the opera to those who have seen it. While it lacks the architecture of Adams' larger orchestra pieces, it's still a very enjoyable listening experience as is Guide to Strange Places.

i am so excited!

Personally, i felt that Doctor Atomic was probably one of the greatest operas i had ever seen. I just loved the orchestral textures. I am happy that itunes finally has Doctor Atomic, even though it isn't the opera. Everything on this disc sounds great. The brass, acoustics, etc.

Dr Atomic

John Adams, composes a magnificent gift wrapped from our recent dark American history. In this recording one has the opportunity to acquaint ones self to the basic composition. The Saint Louis Symphony does a splendid job in interpretation guided by Robertson. To seriously listen to this work and then the opera, will bring you to the realization of complete horror America brought to the world.
