Music in Time | Stay On It

Venue: Simons Center Recital Hall at College of Charleston

Duration: Approximately 1 hour


Directed and hosted by John Kennedy

New sounds in music

The energy and endurance of the musical revolution called minimalism is showcased in this program featuring recent work by the legendary Steve Reich, as well as an early classic by the long-neglected pioneer Julius Eastman. His Stay On It (1973) has reemerged as a signal composition of its time and, in retrospect, as an ode to Eastman’s too-short life. Also on the program are Reich’s Pulse (2015) and Runner (2016)—works that showcase the virtuosic vitality and lyricism of his musical signature.
