With the Dreamhouse Quartet, Muziekgebouw Eindhoven has a dreamensemble in the house for you. World famous piano-sisters Katia & Marielle Labeque join their minimal music friends Bryce Dessner (known from the band The National and our composer in residence for no less than three seasons) and French guitarist David Chalmin (La Tere Invisible). This can't get any better! The Labeques recorded their album A Minimalist Dream House in 2013, aiming a spotlight at the big pioneers of minimal music and their followers. This concert is fully in line with this. You're invited to dive into the hallucinating soundscapes of Philip Glass, Steve Reich and Bryce Dessner himself.

In Four movements for two pianos uit 2008 exploreert Pilip Glass alle expressieve mogelijkheden van twee concertvleugels. Zijn karakteristieke repetitieve patronen komen samen met heel eigen harmonisch spel. Schrijnende tonen lijken op het eerste gehoor te schuren binnen het klanklandschap, maar vinden daarin dan toch in thuis. 

Steve Reichs Electronic Counterpoint wordt meestal gespeeld door één gitarist begeleid door vooraf op tape opgenomen tracks. Pulserende klankwolken waaruit kleine melodische fragmenten opduiken. Laag over laag, vanuit stilte via complexiteit terug naar stilte. Een minimalistisch klankbouwwerk zonder weerga.

De tweede helft van dit concert speelt het Dream House Quartet werk van gitarist/componist Bryce Dessner. Van het album El Chan, door de Labeque zusjes geheel gewijd aan de muziek van Dessner, klinkt El Chan voor twee piano’s en Haven voor twee gitaren en twee piano’s. Dessner droeg El Chan op aan zijn vriend filmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu (The Revenant, Babel, Amores Perros, etc,). Inspiratie ervoor putte hij uit de mysterieuze legendes rond de beschermgeest van een stil water dichtbij Iñárritu’s woonplaats, middenin het overweldigende, zinderende Mexicaanse landschap.
