Short Ride in a Fast Machine

For 1 Piano, 4 Hands

John Adams

 

• Piano arrangement of John Adams’ 1986 orchestral work
• Advanced level
• Arrangement by composer and pianist Preben Antonsen

 

Written in 1986, John Adams’ Short Ride in a Fast Machine was written as a fanfare for orchestra, and built upon his already prevalent postminimal style developed in such works as Phyrigian Gates, Shaker Loops, and Nixon in China.

This transcription, dedicated to and recorded by Christina & Michelle Naughton, reveals the additional rhythmic and tonal aspects of this master work sometimes lost in its original orchestration and is deserving of a prominent place in the four-hand piano repertoire.
