Steve Reich  Music for Eighteen Musicians

One of the pioneering figures of Minimalist music in the 1960s, Steve Reich influenced a huge range of composers through his innovative use of repetitive figures and slow harmonic rhythm to create hypnotic phasing patterns. This concert by the acclaimed London Sinfonietta comprises four classic works, beginning with the simplest of forms – two performers getting progressively more out of sync when clapping – and ending with his seminal 1976 Music for Eighteen Musicians, which combines instrumentalists and vocalists over a cycle of 11 chords to create a pulsating hour of shape-shifting rhythms.
