Steve Reich and John Adams originally made their breakthrough with high-energy music full of shifting near-repetitions. They are still called minimalists, even though that name is no longer applicable – just listen to Adams’s Violin Concerto with its endless melodies. So we should not attempt to classify the brilliant and versatile Mathilde Wantenaar: tomorrow she will already have outgrown that classification.
