Mavericks of Minimalism

By Network for New Music (other events)

Sunday, April 7 2019 3:00 PM 5:30 PM

The enchanting final concert of the season, centered around a commissioned work by post-minimalist cross-culturalist, Evan Ziporyn, for string quartet and 4 gamelan players. To this, Network adds Gerald Levinson’s exquisitely constructed Balinese inspired Bronze Music (2 pianos, 4 hands) and Road Movies (violin and piano) by John Adams, which inserts a subversive ‘swing’ into the mix. The concert concludes where it all began: with a special performance of the iconic In C by Terry Riley played by the Network Ensemble, the Gamelan Semara Santi players, and instrumentalists from the Sinfonia Youth Orchestra. Finally, Yale music professor Hannah Lash’s C (vibraphone and piano) provides a companion work
