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. As a leader of the minimalist movement in the 1960s, his works have become central to the musical landscape worldwide, influencing generations of younger musicians, choreographers and visual artists.

He toured the world with his own ensemble and his compositions are performed internationally by major orchestras and ensembles.
