A panorama of four 20th century ‘minimalist’ masterpieces, chosen for their introspective quality. Assembled around Steve Reich’s undisputed masterpiece, Tehillim, this concert is more than the sum of its parts: the chosen works and their dialogue bring to life a “theatre in music”, a palette of sensitive ideas that mirror our most pressing concerns.
