Minimalism and Maximalism
An unexpected combination of classicism and music of the 20th century – the “minimalist” Steve Reich and the “maximalist” Ludwig van Beethoven. Performed by the Czech Student Philharmonic under the baton of Marko Ivanović. This programme is based on a spoken word of Czech language, English subtitles are not provided.
Are the composers of modern music who use “minimalist” musical means – such as Steve Reich – really so far off from Ludwig van Beethoven, whose music is understood as the unattainable ideal of compositional and humanitarian maximalism? Reich’s Eight Lines will be heard on the same concert together with a selection from Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony.
