Terry & Gyan Riley
AUG 2 / Bimhuis
Terry Riley should need no introduction, as one of the most legendary and iconic minimalist, avant-garde composers of our time - Riley’s 'In C' is perhaps one of the most important piece of contemporary classical music from the past century. Following on from Steve Reich’s epic debut last year, we are following tradition in booking some of the most important and formative acts of our era. He’ll be teaming up with Gyan Riley - his son - for a performance of dynamic, conceptual orchestration that will undoubtedly by bathed in beauty, and vivid melody. The two - connected musically and spiritually - have a musically connected language that allows that to perform off-the-cuff, conceptual works.
