Steve Reich’s grandchildren

Complex yet catchy, intricately structured yet atmospheric and emotional: the works of Caroline Shaw, Caleb Burhans and Pamela Z are fascinating and enchanting. Exploring the traditional genre of the string quartet from new angles, they are challenging, hypnotic and calming at the same time. The great minimal music pioneer Steve Reich affectionately calls this generation of US composers his »grandchildren«.

strong>Please note: Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has regrettably been forced to cancel her participation in this concert. Pamela Z has kindly agreed to step in.
