Three Generations: Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, and Steve Reich

Carnegie Hall - Zankel Hall

Thu, Apr 6 @ 7:30 PM

Music of Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, and Steve Reich is featured in a performance that’s part of Three Generations, a Reich-curated exploration of the changing direction of concert music from the mid-20th century to the present day. Chant-like melodic lines and notes resembling ringing bells are Pärt hallmarks, while Glass’s incandescent String Quartet No. 5 juxtaposes rhythmically propulsive passages with slower, tender ones. Reich’s Pulitzer Prize–winning Different Trains is a riveting work in which strings imitate the sounds of speech samples drawn from recorded interviews and train sounds. This powerful musical documentary speaks to the composer’s childhood and the tragic experience of Jews in 1940s Europe.
