Steve Reich

For Gordon, Lang and Wolfe, the work of Steve Reich has been immensely influential. This was the music that changed their world. For them, it was clear that Reich “had unleashed a hidden and locked-up power of the sounds between the sounds.” When they met in New York City in the early 1980s, Reich’s music was what they played for each other and what that they discussed. With the festival in May, the Barbican Centre recognizes this influence and the role these composers have toward influencing the next generation of composers and musicians.”
