Minimal Awkwardness: Philip Glass Versus Steve Reich at Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival 2014
The glass will be shattered regarding who's the better minimalist--Steve Reich vs. Phil Glass--in Brooklyn, New York during a three-day performance at BAM's upcoming Next Wave Festival 2014.
Alcohol will be served, too.
Partnering with Nonesuch Records, this year's Next Wave Fest finds Glass and Reich performing on the same bill, with their respective ensembles (featuring more totalist names like Nico Muhly, Timo Andres, Synergy Vocals, etc.), for the first time in over 30 years.
Other performers on Nonesuch's watch touching down in Fort Greene: Youssou N'Dour, Caetano Veloso, Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet and Brad Mehldau.
