“There’s just a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history, and Steve Reich is one of them,” wrote The Guardian. Two of Reich’s early works, Clapping Music and Drumming, are featured alongside the US premiere of Quartet. Clapping Music is a fascinating exploration of rhythm and syncopation, while the groundbreaking Drumming was conceived after the composer heard master drummers in Ghana.
