As the first in line to put their quarter in the minimalist jukebox, members of the Los Angeles Master Chorale (LAMC) kick off the second installment of the LA Phil’s Minimalist Jukebox Festival with a celebration of two of the genre’s most recognized composers. The globally acclaimed master chorale, heralded for its unparalleled artistry and versatility, reprises Reich's You Are (Variations), considered by Steve Reich himself as his best work, and Lang's Hans Christian Andersen-inspired, Pulitzer Prize-winning the little match girl passion, hailed by The New York Times as a “one of the most moving and original scores of recent years” and described as a "missive from heaven...a stunner.” The Washington Post noted a similar reaction in its review, claiming, "I don't think I've ever been so moved...(it) is unlike any music I know." In addition to tenor soloists (performing Pérotin's Sederunt), the concert features 32 singers, four piano virtuosos, and an instrumental ensemble, conducted by the remarkable Grant Gershon.
