Theme: Contemporary Music
Thema on Wednesday 28 June at 20:00 CET presents some key works by the American composer Peter Garland.
Peter Garland (65) is a true maverick. He has been building up an impressive oeuvre since the seventies in which minimalism, Native American traditions, world-music and an intense lyricism are brought together. Garland is an incorrigible globetrotter and music researcher who creates an oasis of serenity and restrained ecstasy in his compositions. The compositions in the programme include a recent and exceptionally beautiful work for solo piano “The Birthday Party”.
