Reich: Music For 18 Musicians

February

14

Thursday

Hailed as one of the most original musical thinkers of our time, Steve Reich has mesmerised audiences the world over for his pulsing rhythms, shimmering textures and repeated patterns. Completed in 1976, his iconic Music for 18 Musicians, directed by Macaela Haslam, will cast a hypnotic spell with its colourful array of tuned percussion, clarinets, two string players, four pianos and four vocalists. To listen to this music is to immerse yourself in a rhythmic and melodic labyrinth.
