A 1963 Curtis graduate, Eastman “personifies so many issues of our day,” reports critic Mark Swed
Much of Julius Eastman’s (Piano ’63) music was lost during his life and after his untimely death. The groundbreaking artist’s works are reemerging on stages around the country: Curtis’s Ensemble 20/21 performed The Holy Presence of Joan d’Arc in March and L.A.-based Wild Up, including Jiji (Guitar ’15), recently released Femenine to great acclaim, for example. New reports for the Los Angeles Times, the New Yorker, and NPR comment on the latter performance and explore Eastman’s resonance for today’s audiences.READ NPR ARTICLE READ LA TIMES ARTICLE
