May 17th sees the release of our exclusive arrangement of China Gates by American composer John Adams. A huge figure in 20th and 21st century music, this arrangement by David Gordon Shute is the first such ever sanctioned by the composer and helps celebrate his 70th birthday year.

Originally written for solo piano in 1977 the piece “oscillates between two modal worlds” and is described by the composer as an “almost perfect palindrome”. Special thanks go to the composer and Music Sales for allowing us to arrange it.
