classical music en Schubert And The Minimalists: Savoring The Journey <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The old saying “it’s about the journey, not the destination” is one that comes to mind when listening to the music of </span><a href="" style="line-height: 1.5;">Franz Schubert</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;">. Seattle Weekly music writer and composer </span><a href="" style="line-height: 1.5;">Gavin Borchert</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> has been thinking a lot lately about Schubert and the distinctive way the composer’s music slowly unfolds over time. To Gavin’s ears, Schubert, an early </span>19<sup>th</sup><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> century composer, has a strong kinship with </span><a href="" style="line-height: 1.5;">American minimalist composers </a><span style="line-height: 1.5;">of the </span>20<sup>th</sup><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and </span>21<sup>st</sup><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> centuries. That kinship is explored in a new recording called</span><a href="" style="line-height: 1.5;"><strong> </strong>“The Knights:&nbsp; A Second of Silence.”</a></p><p> Fri, 01 Feb 2013 01:14:19 +0000 Dave Beck 7505 at Schubert And The Minimalists: Savoring The Journey
