From Cued Up On Q2: “Set Your Phasers to Stun “

Juilliard’s Axiom Ensemble plays Steve Reich’s Triple Quartet and Music for 18 Musicians.
Sunday, March 27, 2011


“If there were ever a composer in no need of introduction, it’s the eternally youthful and forever hip Steve Reich. Tune into Sunday’s Cued Up at 2 pm for live performances of his Triple Quartet and seminal Music For 18 Musicians by the Axiom Ensemble.

Taken from a December 9, 2010 performance at Alice Tully Hall, this all-Reich concert features The Juilliard School’s Axiom Ensemble, a student-formed new music group directed by Jeffery Milarsky. Reich took an active roll in the performance, not only curating the concert (along with Axiom’s upcoming performance of Reich’s Drumming at (Le) Poisson Rouge, which you’ll be able to hear on Cued Up’s May 15 show), but also coaching the ensemble on both pieces and mixing the amplification levels for the Tully performance. ”
