    Adams wanted the Thirteen Colonies to be free from Great Britain. However, Adams was fair and thought every person should be treated fairly. Even though he did not want British soldiers in Boston, he was the lawyer who defended the British soldiers who were involved in the Boston Massacre. Adams was a representative from Massachusetts during the Se...

    Adams was the first vice president under George Washington. After Washington chose not to run again, Adams won the 1796 election. Adams is thought to have been the first president to belong to a political party, but like George Washington, he thought himself above any particular party. He ran for president on the Federalist ticket. He beat Thomas J...

    During his term, he resolved a conflict against France peacefully. He also passed the Alien and Sedition Acts which made it illegal to say bad things about the government. Many people did not like those acts because they felt it took away their freedom of speech. Adams was not re-elected president and lost to Thomas Jefferson. The Federalist Party ...

Se graduó en la Concord High School en Concord (New Hampshire).[3]​ Estudió clarinete con su padre y luego con Felix Viscuglia, clarinetista de la Orquesta Sinfónica de Boston. A lo...

    En 1983, Adams conoció al director escénico Peter Sellars, que le sugirió escribir una ópera sobre el histórico encuentro en 1972 entre Richard Nixon y Mao Tse-Tung. Adams, en un principio escéptico, comprendió pronto que la ópera, que se había ocupado siempre de mitos y de arquetipos, podía encontrar en Nixon y Mao los personajes propios de nuestr...

    Su siguiente trabajo fue de nuevo una obra orquestal, El Dorado (1991), un encargo de la San Francisco Symphony, que trata de los efectos de la avaricia en nuestro ambiente y en la sociedad y que se centra en otra de las claves contemporáneas, el deterioro ambiental. El Dorado alude tanto al paraíso que buscaban los conquistadores españoles, edén d...

    El Niño, es un oratorio de Navidad multilingüe —inglés, español y latín— que narra el nacimiento de Jesús, y que requiere un gran conjunto de voces (soprano, mezzo soprano, barítono bajo y tres contratenores, un coro SCTB y un coro de niños). La obra, de casi dos horas de duración, fue compuesta para la celebración del milenio y se concibió para se...

    Hoy ya está claro que el minimalismo es solamente un lado de la personalidad musical multifacética de Adams. Más que cualquier otro compositor de su generación, Adams ha alcanzado una síntesis accesible y genuinamente estadounidense entre la ambición seria clásica y el toque vernáculo. Esta clase de populismo apenas se había oído en Estados Unidos ...

    Youth and early career

    John Adams, in full John Coolidge Adams, was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, on February 15, 1947. As an adolescent, he lived in Woodstock, Vermont for five years before moving to East Concord, New Hampshire, and his family spent summers on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, where his grandfather ran a dance hall.

    1977 to Nixon in China

    In 1977, Adams wrote the half-hour-long solo piano piece Phrygian Gates, which he later called "my first mature composition, my official 'opus one'", as well as its much shorter companion piece, China Gates. The next year, he finished Shaker Loops, a string septet based on an earlier, unsuccessful string quartet called Wavemaker. In 1979, he finished his first orchestral work, Common Tones in Simple Time, which was premiered by the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Orchestra under Adams' ba...

    1988 to Doctor Atomic

    Adams wrote two orchestral pieces in 1988: Fearful Symmetries, a 25-minute work in the same style as Nixon in China, and The Wound-Dresser, a setting of Walt Whitman's 1865 poem of the same title, written when Whitman was volunteering at a military hospital during the American Civil War. The Wound-Dresseris scored for baritone voice, two flutes (or two piccolos), two oboes, clarinet, bass clarinet, two bassoons, two horns, trumpet (or piccolo trumpet), timpani, synthesizer, and strings. Durin...

    The music of Adams is usually categorized as minimalist or post-minimalist, although in an interview he said that his music is part of the 'post-style' era at the end of the twentieth century. While Adams employs minimalist techniques, such as repeating patterns, he is not a strict follower of the movement. Though Adams did adopt much of the minima...

    Overview

    Adams won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2003 for his 9/11 memorial piece, On the Transmigration of Souls. Response to his output as a whole has been more divided, and Adams's works have been described as both brilliant and boring in reviews that stretch across both ends of the rating spectrum. Shaker Loops has been described as "hauntingly ethereal", while 1999's Naïve and Sentimental Music has been called "an exploration of a marvelously extended spinning melody". The New York Times called...

    Klinghoffer controversy

    The opera The Death of Klinghoffer has been criticized as antisemitic by some, including by the Klinghoffer family. Leon Klinghoffer's daughters, Lisa and Ilsa, after attending the opera, released a statement saying: "We are outraged at the exploitation of our parents and the coldblooded murder of our father as the centerpiece of a production that appears to us to be anti-Semitic." In response to these accusations of antisemitism, composer and Oberlin College professor Conrad Cummings wrote a...
