Reich, Glass, Adams: the Sounds that Changed America

Postby The Dr » Thu Jan 28, 2016 9:22 am

In postwar America, one generation of composers transformed music in the here and now – and opened a path to its future. From world cinema to the New York underground, in concert hall, opera house and nightclub, the music of Philip Glass, Steve Reich and John Adams has shaped the trajectory of American music and renewed the way we listen to the world.

As Reich and Glass turn 80 and Adams turns 70, the Barbican’s family of ensembles presents premieres, revivals, films and theatrical collaborations – events that go beyond mere listening to embrace every field of 21st century creativity. Front-line reports from a revolution that’s still in progress.

'Dostoevsky's dead,' said the citizeness, but somehow not very confidently.

'I protest!' Behemoth exclaimed hotly. 'Dostoevsky is immortal!”
