ESSENTIAL MINIMALISM

Saturday, October 9, 2021 8:00pm

Event Description

Sat 9 OCT at 8PM •  Old Forester’s Paristown Hall

Exploring new sounds and new sensations in music that stripped down the elements of melodies, rhythm, and harmony ignited a genre known as “Minimalism.”  Starting in the 1960s and still influencing composers today, the style is inspired by Steve Reich’s monumental Music for 18 Musicians, a masterpiece of early minimalism and a work rarely performed today. This style has been called “trance-inducing” or “hypnotic.” There’s no doubt that this is a concert for the music adventurer!

Presented in collaboration with the UofL School of Music
