‘Gay Guerilla’ Julius Eastman (4 pianos)

BIO

American minimalist composer Julius Eastman (1940-1990) was rediscovered several years ago. His music was raw and organic, incorporating elements of pop and jazz, and he often chose titles denouncing the oppression and social struggles of blacks and gays in the USA. Politically active himself, he was a historic witness to the emergence of the sexual revolution and civil rights movements of the 1960s, composing Gay Guerilla in 1979, ten years after the Stonewall riots, of which 2019 marks the 50th anniversary.
