ACO Originals is a series of releases dedicated to new works commissioned by the ACO and recorded live in concert.
With his Movements (for us and them), American composer Samuel Adams strived to write something deeply expressive for the musicians to play. 'What strikes me about the ACO is the personality of the ensemble,' he says. 'They have a wonderful profile when they come on stage. So much of this piece is about exploring interpersonal dynamics. I would be happy if an audience member leaves the concert feeling like they understand something, that they didn’t previously, of the personality of the ensemble.'
