A surprising, enlightening series of conversations that shed new light on the music and career of “our greatest living composer” (New York Times)

Steve Reich is a living legend in the world of contemporary classical music.

He has explored non-Western music and American vernacular music from jazz to rock, as well as groundbreaking music and video pieces. He toured the world with his own ensemble and his compositions are performed internationally by major orchestras and ensembles.
