There’s probably some celebrating going on over at Seattle Symphony HQ right now — The New York Times’ “Fall Arts Preview — Times 100” lists the orchestra’s recording of John Luther Adams’ luminous “Become Ocean” at No. 27. In case you missed it: The the orchestra commissioned the work and premiered it in June, 2013; JLA won the Pulitzer Prize for music this past spring; and the SSO played “Ocean” at Carnegie Hall in May, the first time the composer got to hear it live. You can hear it, too, thanks to a CD release by Cantaloupe Music, due on Sept. 30.
