(8 of 10) Back to Basics

Although minimalism was born in the 1960s, it was only in the 1970s that it began to exert an influence over composers in all parts of the world. As radical, in its way, as the total serialism of the 1950s, and just as disciplined, minimal music reinstated tonal relationships and made a virtue out of repetition, repetition, repetition... Few were unaffected by it: even Stockhausen and Boulez produced works of comparative simplicity and dramatic directness.

Music by Terry Riley, La Monte Young, Pauline Oliveros, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Gavin Bryars, Mike Oldfield, Pierre Boulez, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Elliott Carter, Harrison Birtwistle, Thea Musgrave, Brian Ferneyhough and Richard Meale. (ABC Classic FM)
