Listening late one night to 1920s piano-roll music, Adams was struck by the way the rolls made their mark on the musical content - altering it's essence in a way that tape-recording didn't do - and that bright, mechanically rhythmic edginess that the process imparted to the notes. This became the inspiration for CENTURY ROLLS, a piano concerto commissioned by Emanuel Ax, in which orchestra and soloist become a bustling rhythmic machine which demands nothing short of sheer athletic prowess from all it's musicians. With a headlong energy broken only by it's 3/4-time slow-movement gymnopedie, CENTURY ROLLS is a breathtaking ride for performer and audience alike, and a dazzling testimony to Adams' adroit compositional gifts. This is it's world premiere recording.
