We’re first to put our quarter in the minimalist jukebox and kick off the second installment of the LA Phil’s popular Minimalist Jukebox Festival curated by John Adams. The Master Chorale gave the world premiere of You Are (Variations) in 2004, considered by Steve Reich as his best work, then recorded it for Nonesuch. Based on the Hans Christian Andersen story, Lang’s Pulitzer Prize-winning the little match girl passion wowed audiences in 2011 with its simplicity, sublime beauty and intimacy.
