Terry Riley’s legacy traces back to 1964, when he diverted the course of modern music history with his minimalist masterwork, “In C.” Cited as influential to everyone from Steve Reich and Philip Glass to The Who, Riley’s polymetric, brightly orchestrated improvisations and compositions set the stage for a new tonality. His early collaborators included Pauline Oliveros, Morton Subotnick, Chet Baker and La Monte Young, and in 1970, he became a student of North Indian classical music, appearing alongside the revered vocalist Pandit Pran Nath. His works have been performed by numerous artists and ensembles, among them John Zorn and the Kronos Quartet, and have received many honors, including a Grammy nomination.
