On April 30th Carnegie Hall is celebrating the 75th birthday of minimalist great Steve Reich with the Bang on a Can All-Stars, eighth blackbird, Kronos Quartet, and So Percussion.
This concert is not to be missed, as Steve Reich has recently been called "our greatest living composer" (The New York Times), and "...the most original musical thinker of our time" (The New Yorker).
The program will feature three New York premieres of his recent works: on the bill is Mallet Quartet, WTC 9/11, 2x5 and Double Sextet, the piece which earned him a Pulitzer Prize in 2009.
