From experimental beginnings in the loft spaces and galleries of New York, Minimalism is now a mainstay of contemporary music, its influences spreading far beyond into the worlds of film, dance, and literature. Our latest Turning Points concert features works by two of its greatest exponents; Steve Reich, Philip Glass and Terry Riley.
