Steve Reich: Music for 18 musicians
Bang On A Can
Minimalist icon Steve Reich leads this performance of his own music. Visiting from New York, Bang on a Can perform the first half including the early classic Clapping Music, the lilting layers of Electric Counterpoint and the brilliant Sextet. The London Sinfonietta take the stage in the second half with the phenomena that is Music for 18 Musicians with its perfect blend of voices and instruments with pulsing riffs and shimmering harmonies.
