Though it developed in the States, Minimalism has spread, and now post-minimal music can be heard on both sides of the Atlantic. We'll hear music by Hauschka, Howard Skempton, Max Richter, the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Wim Mertens, and more. Hauschka is the alias of German pianist/composer Volker Bertelmann, who playfully explores the ‘prepared’ piano in his works. We'll hear something from his latest release - "Ferndorf." There's also music by British composer Howard Skempton, Belgian minimalist Wim Mertens, and much more.
