Prom 37: Steve Reich

Surrender to the pulsing rhythms and repetitions of Minimalism’s founding father, Steve Reich, performed by the BBC Singers and contemporary specialists the Endymion Ensemble. Relive the early experimentation of It’s Gonna Rain with its hypnotic layers of spoken sound, while The Desert Music offers a hypnotizing meditation on fragments of William Carlos Williams’s poetry.
