Dr K Sextet – Steve Reich at 80
5th March 2016 @ 7:30 pm
Ilze Ikse (flute), Jessica Grimes (clarinet), Alice Barron (violin), Angélique Lihou (cello), Joseph Richards (percussion), Alex Wilson (piano)
Steve Reich has created some of his most exciting and innovative repertoire in working with other musicians; notably with the American ensembles Bang On A Can and Eighth Blackbird. This programme fuses Reich’s Double Sextet – a work commissioned by Eighth Blackbird and featuring live musicians and stereo recording performed simultaneously – with music by each of the founders of Bang On A Can (David Lang, Julia Wolfe & Michael Gordon), creating an adrenalin fuelled concert of pulsating minimalism and experimentalism.
