Eos Music Inc, July 1997. Hardcover. Item #279138
Published in conjunction with a 1997 New York concert program at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, this collection of essays and visual materials examines the affinities between Bach-era Baroque and such minimalists as John Adams, Steve Reich, and John Cage. John Adams does not exaggerate when he calls Mnimalism "the only really interesting, important stylistic development in the past thirty years". Think of the Bach Suites for Solo Cello, and their long series of arpeggios. Now think of Philip Glass, of ecstatic arpeggios and you may begin to hear a great unison sounding through the history of music.
