Musique classique

50 Années de Minimalisme

26/11/2011 from 19:30 to 22:30


The rock world was no less taken by the new musical pulse washing in from New York. The Who, Brian Eno and Laurie Anderson were quick to absorb the aesthetic. It has since become a dominating influence on the likes of Sonic YouthAphex Twin and Radiohead. But the process went two ways. While minimalism was revolutionising rock music, rock, jazz and world music was in turn revolutionising minimalism.

The Labèque's and their band give the UK premiere of Philip Glass’s Four Movements for Two Pianos (2008), Terry Riley’s psychadelic Persian Surgery Dervishes (1971), the lively postminimalism of Glenn Branca’s Lesson No 1 (1979) and a selection of works from what is considered the Well-Tempered Clavier of minimalism, William Duckworth's Time Curve Preludes (1977-8). And there are world premieres from a pupil of La Monte Young - the founder of experimental band Bowery Electric - Lawrence Chandler, and French percussionist Raphaël Séguinier.
