Terry Riley & Friends

08 Apr 2015, 20:15 - 22:15 CEST

On Tuesday, we return to Amsterdam's Muziekgebouw for the World Minimal Music Festival and a performance from one of the great musical pioneers of our time, Terry Riley. Accompanied by a few select friends, Riley will play two of his towering classics: 'In C', one of the first minimal compositions ever written; and 'A Rainbow in Curved Air', an enormously influential composition from the quintessential Summer of Love. Further to that, the broadcast will feature Riley premiering 'Children of Gaza', a piece specially composed for the festival.
