EDITORS’ NOTES

Originally used to describe the late-'60s work of experimental downtown Manhattan composers like Philip Glass and Steve Reich, minimalism has since become shorthand for classical music at its most hypnotically repetitive, rhythmic, and precise. But don't let the apparent simplicity fool you: These compositions tend to work subtly, covering great musical distance, seemingly without moving at all. We regularly update this playlist. If you like a piece, add it to your library.
