“Soloist Timothy McAllister proved brilliantly up to the enormous demands — vast spreads of pitches, disjunct lines that wanted to be as lyrical as possible and some dazzling scurries.”

Scott Cantrell The Dallas Morning News (4/25/12)

“(John) Adams goes for more than stylizations with [City Noir’s] wily jazz spine. Keeping a sweaty, smoky after-hours jam percolating were Timothy McAllister’s volcanic sax…”

Lewis Whittington American Record Guide (Sept/Oct 2010)

“John Adams said he wouldn’t wish [that alto saxophone solo] on anyone, but Timothy McAllister dispatching it with wonderful grace on this world premiere evening.”

Fred Child Commentary from American Public Media/Performance Today’s coverage of Gustavo Dudamel’s Inaugural Concert with the LA Phil

“brilliant solos were in abundance, especially by Timothy McAllister…”

Janos Gereben San Francisco Classical Voice

“the main attraction of this enjoyable St. Louis Symphony album, conducted by David Robertson, is Adams’ Saxophone Concerto, composed for the virtuosic Timothy McAllister, who plays it here. Stacked with swing-era allusions, moody 4am interludes and cartwheeling acrobatics, it is unpretentious fun from start to finish”

Richard Morrison The Times London (5/31/14)

  8. Performance of John Adams’ City Noir with the New World Symphony

    7:30 PM

    Inspired Surroundings John Adams Conductor Saturday, 04/02/2011 at 7:30PM at New Campus Tickets: Tickets from $15 Sounds of the Times For ticket information, call: 305-673-3331

    John Adams - American composer extraordinaire - takes to the podium to present an explosive display of contemporary ingenuity and magic. Said to be “loud, tough and organized,” Julia Wolfe’s Arsenal packs a punch! With trumpets and trombones on the front lines, she drew inspiration from one of FDR’s Fireside Chats. Bartók uses a bagpipe-like tune to convey the Eastern European and Middle Eastern folk flavor in his Dance Suite, and in a gripping finale, Adams leads his own City Noir, inspired by Kevin Starr’s “Dream” books that, to him, contain “pockets of high-energy and cinematic lyricism.”
