Maximus Minimalists

  • AMP by Strathmore 11810 Grand Park Avenue Rockville, MD, 20852 United States (map)

Arvo Pärt: Fratres 
Adams: Son of Chamber Symphony 
Glass: Modern Love Waltz 
Górecki: Requiem for a Polka

Are you ready to be hypnotized by the Maximus Minimalists? Join us for a powerful exploration of the giants of the minimalist movement.  But don’t be misled: minimalism does not mean boring and contentless. Composer Arvo Pärt’s Fratres encapsulates his observation that ‘the instant and eternity are struggling within us.’  John Adams’s Son of Chamber Symphony and Phillip Glass’s Modern Love Waltz both explore the stylings of America’s popular modern composers. And Henryk Górecki’s Kleines Requiem für eine Polka is filled with contradictions and ironies.  Come see why simple isn’t really simple but rather, so much more!
