BL!NDMAN go back to their roots

Three cheers for BL!NDMAN! To mark their 30th anniversary BL!NDMAN are going back to their roots with the ensemble Maximalist! They ring in the festivities with music from greats of minimal music, such as Glass, Reich and Andriessen. And after that the party really gets started when BL!NDMAN present their version of Händel's most monumental works, using saxophone quintet and Decap organ.
