Program

Four essential authors of the universe of minimalist music feature in the programme. ‎‎G-song by Terry Riley was his first work for a quartet, which comes from a ‎previous work for saxophone and keyboard. The String Quartet No. 3 by Philip ‎Glass is an excerpt from the music score he wrote for the film Mishima by Paul ‎Schrader. Based on an original for a cappella vocals, Arvo Pärt adapted Summa ‎for string quartet in 1991 as an instrumental piece. The Quartet No. 2 by Michael ‎Nyman is based on the carnatic music of southern India that accompanies the development ‎of dance. The concert will feature the participation of visual artist Pablo Bruera who will ‎employ light-based video creativity during the actual performance.‎
