'Attractively produced, easily readable.' (Musical Times) 'As a series, Phaidon's 20th Century Composers has brought remarkable variety and a welter of information, both necessary and delightfully trivial. Intended both for the general reader and for the more enthusiatically musical...' (The Scotsman)From the Publisher:
This accessible yet informative book, the first in its area aimed at a general readership, offers a unique overview of the controversial musical style of minimalism - a name originally attributed to the movement as a derogatory term, in the same way as Impressionism was first derisively labelled by art critics. Minimalism, perhaps best represented by the American composers Steve Reich and Philip Glass, has always had a mixed reception and is both reviled and revered in equal measure. This book looks at the the development of this notorious style and discusses the conflicting opinions surrounding it, while considering the music itself and those that create it within their social, cultural and historical contexts.

Descripción Phaidon Press May 1996, 1996. Trade Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Minimalism is arguably the most popular style of concert music that the late twentieth century has produced, appealing to the widest possible audience -- fans of rock, jazz and classical music. It is an ecstatic and vibrant movement, combining classical, popular and non-Western elements to create a style that restores the severed link between composer and audience. The movement is surveyed here from its beginnings, through a study of its principal American exponents -- La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Steve Reich and Philip Glass -- and on to the 'post-minimalism' of John Adams, Michael Nyman, Louis Andriessen and Arvo Part.
