John Adams receives Erasmus

John Adams received the Erasmus Prize on November 28th from the King in the Royal Palace in Amsterdam. I had the huge honor of playing at the ceremony with Gerard Bouwhuis (a Splendor friend and piano monster).  We played two movements of Road Movies. James Murray made some gorgeous visuals for the occasion. James has done lighting design for most of my solo shows and it was such a pleasure to work together towards this special event.
