Music for 18 Musicians Steve Reich


As Ars Musica turns the spotlight on US minimalism, Ictus and the Synergy vocal ensemble perform Steve Reich's classic Music for Eighteen Musicians. They have performed this work together before, with the composer's endorsement. Female voices, four pianos, a large arsenal of melodic percussion instruments, and two bass clarinets form its rich, crystal-clear structure, which, over an hour, gradually becomes an unstoppable, high-speed pulsation.
