John Luther Adams' Nunataks (Solitary Peaks) for solo Piano. Commissioned by Music Northwest. Duration: 7 minutes.
'Nunataks are mountains that rise up out of ice?elds and glaciers. The jagged contours of nunataks contrast sharply with the smooth whiteness that surrounds them.
As the ice melts and the sea rises, these solitary peaks stand as stark reminders of human isolation and vulnerability.' - John Luther Adams
