Repeating Patterns - Steve Reich Matinee: London Sinfonietta
London Sinfonietta – the UK’s leading contemporary music ensemble – has produced a matinee concert of Steve Reich’s work for Key Stage 3 and 4 students.
The programme includes the Edexcel GCSE set work Electric Counterpoint, which has become one of the defining pieces of modern music; 2 × 5, Reich’s first exploration of rock instrumentation with electric guitars, bass guitar, keyboard; and drum set and Clapping Music, a piece of music that needs no instruments beyond the human body.
The concert will be accompanied by an Online Teaching Resource exploring the compositional techniques of minimalism.
This is a rare opportunity to hear a live performance by the pioneer of minimalist music and one of the greatest living composers.
If I were the British Government I would declare the London Sinfonietta a National Treasure… Long may they continue to make music!” Steve Reich
