It is only recently that the music of New York composer Julius Eastman (1940–1990) has been rediscovered. His pieces are designated part of the Minimalist movement, but their open-plan organization lends them a highly original sound, only slightly reminiscent of better-known exponents of the school such as Steve Reich. Eastman’s personal history is tragic, full of misfortune and illness. A new generation of ensembles, including Studio Dan, has lately been occupied with his musical resurrection.
