I was at the world premiere of Doctor Atomic.  It blew me away!

Lucky so-and-so! Adams is one of my favourite living composers - please give us a list of recommended recordings if possible. Besides Nixon, I only know Harmonium (1980), Short Ride in a Fast Machine (1986), The Wound-Dresser (1989), The Death of Klinghoffer (1991), Violin Concerto (1993) and the Doctor Atomic Symphony (2007) - but what I know I really like!


I also like his Violin Concerto No. 2, and prefer other conducting to his own performance of Doctor Atomic.  I also saw MET performance in a theater which was great too.  I'm going off memory but think the conductor was Alan Gilbert.
