Steve Reich & Slagwerk Den Haag
AUG 2 / Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ
Contemporary avant garde and minimalist composer Steve Reich is one the true masters of our time. The genius behind ‘Music for 18 Musicians’ will be teaming up with contemporary Dutch percussion outfit Slagwerk Den Haag for renditions of ‘Drumming’, the 90-minute composition built around his fondness for phasing in addition to 'Clapping Music'. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch the two perform together, as the Dutch outfit get to play with the artist responsible for so much of their inspiration for the second time.
