Minimalism was an American invention, but in Russia its own fate awaited it. Before the performance of Vladimir Martynov and the ensemble Opus Posth ( https://www.facebook.com/events/475135423356091/) critic Alexey Munipov will tell how rehearsing music took root in Russia. The first performances of Terry Riley, the experiments of Alexander Rabinovich-Barakovsky and Nikolai Korndorf, the new minimalism of Anton Batagov, Alexei Aigi and Pavel Karmanov – and, of course, the experiments and searches of Vladimir Martynov himself.
