Steve Reich's 75th Birthday Celebrated by the London Symphony Orchestra, Oct 12 & 15

The London Symphony Orchestra celebrates Steve Reich’s 75th Birthday, performing two concerts in October. A chamber group made up of LSO players performs a selection of Reich’s works at LSO St Luke’s on 12 October. The UBS Soundscapes: Eclectica concert includes Reich’s seminal Different Trains which won a Grammy Award for best Contemporary Classical Composition in 1990, Music for Pieces of Wood, Nagoya Marimbas, Violin Phase and Sextet.

UBS's support for the rich and diverse UBS Soundscapes: Eclectica series at LSO St Luke’s offers audiences the chance to experience world-class artists working at the cutting edge of contemporary style, crossing classical, jazz, folk, pop and world music.

On 15 October there will be a Performance Demonstration on Steve Reich’s Different Trains and Violin Phase by LSO violinists Roman Simovic and David Alberman. They will perform and discuss the inner workings of Reich’s Different Trains and Violin Phase with students from the Guildhall School as part of the Centre for Orchestra programme.
