Best of Fall 2012: Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt and R. Murray Schafer kick off Soundstreams’ 30th anniversary season
The Soundstreams series kicks off its 30th year with a concert featuring new work by a trio of modern music gods.
If Reich’s driving, repetitive music sounds familiar, that’s because it’s in the DNA of so much modern rock, dance and pop. His 2009 composition Mallet Quartet, which will be performed by long-time collaborators Nexus, is a return to the kinds of stripped-down and hypnotic patterns that made him famous. It’s also 15 minutes of pure, blissed-out beauty.
