New Music, Bay Area Premiere! Kronos Quartet, Music of Steve Reich, October 9, 2011

Overview

A highly anticipated local premiere by one of the fathers of minimalism is the centerpiece of this concert by the incomparable Kronos Quartet. The group has long been a champion of the music of Steve Reich, and in this concert they return to celebrate the great composer's 75th birthday. This performance features three works written specifically for Kronos and includes the Bay Area premiere of Reich's WTC 9/11, a moving composition employing recorded voices from the events surrounding the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in New York. "There's just a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history, and Steve Reich is one of them" (The Guardian, London).
