Minimal Piano Reich & Eastman

Concertgebouw Brugge

American minimalism on six pianos.

Six pianos – 528 keys – take us to unprecedented musical heights. Using the barest minimum of means, Steve Reich's Six Pianos paints grand emotional soundscapes. Musical tapestries full of sweeping panoramas, slowly shifting patterns and hypnotic insights. This legendary work is set next to a little known gem by ‘forgotten minimalist’ Julius Eastman. Eastman’s rebellious and uncompromising attitude gave birth to an incredibly brilliant oeuvre. His raw, layered piano improvisations will propel you towards a different and unknown world.
