Minimalism is, according to some, ‘The most influential musical movement of the 20th century’. Whether or not this is a little hyperbolical, minimalism does certainly deserve real recognition and exploration, and Kings Place hence merits a great deal of praise for putting on the three-day ‘50 Years of Minimalism’ festival, curated by Igor Toronyi-Lalic and led on the stage by pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque. Friday’s middle concert, ‘Europeans & Experimentalists’, presented an intriguing, diverse range of minimalist, quasi-minimalist or sort-of-minimal music which certainly succeeded in showing the breadth of minimalism’s scope in recent decades.
