In an Australian first, Adelaide audiences will be able to hear Steve Reich’s minimalist masterpiece live in concert. Four pianists, seven percussionists and four singers feature in the line-up for this mesmerising work. Often heralded as Reich’s masterpiece, Music for 18 Musicians is generally regarded as one of the defining works of the 20th Century and was included in David Bowie’s list of his 25 favourite albums of all time. On release in 1978, the work’s impact on the new music scene was instant and overwhelming. Described by Alex Ross of The New Yorker as a ’40-year wonder’, Reich’s masterpiece continues to have an appeal and significance that transcends boundaries and defines timeless.

 

The performance will be performed by The University of Adelaide’s Ensemble-In-Residence New Music and presented by Soundstream in partnership with Recitals Australia.
