The Stone People takes its name from a piece by John Luther Adams. His “Tukiliit” is subtitled “the stone people who live in the wind” and Lisa’s decision to focus on Tukiliit became the organizing principle for the rest of this recording. John’s music is ruggedly elemental, using very restrained materials as a way of probing some of our most fundamental human truths. Who we are. Where we are. How we relate to each other. How we relate to the natural world. His pieces are stark explorations of humankind in its most elemental state, and this CD brings together, for the first time, his complete acoustic music for solo piano. The composers on this recording all share these concerns because they are all composer-explorers. Martin Bresnick’s reliquary for a song sung by Ishi, the last surviving member of a Native American tribe, who died without telling anyone what the words meant. Julia Wolfe’s commitment to an elemental human value. Kate Moore’s exploration of her Irish-Australian heritage. Missy Mazzoli’s pursuit of the unattainable horizon. The mysteries echo down through the ages. Who we are. Where we are. How we relate to each other. How we relate to the natural world. – David Lang
