Zeitgeist Early Music Festival: Julius Eastman

  • Studio Z East Fourth Street, Suite 200 St. Paul, Minnesota United States (map)

Harrison Hintzsche, baritone, and Michael Betz, bass, will perform Julius Eastman's work for two voices, "Our Father," as a part of Zeitgeist's 8th Annual Early Music Festival. 

Zeitgeist’s 8th Annual Early Music Festival explores the powerful contributions of our musical pioneers with a celebration of African American minimalist composer Julius Eastman. Eastman’s vibrant, virtuosic, and rhythmically aggressive music, and the racially and sexually charged nature of his work challenged the musical establishment and anti-establishment alike in the 1970s and 1980s, greatly impacting the trajectory of American minimalism. Lost after his death in 1990, Eastman’s music has been recently recovered is asserting its influence once again.
