Steve Reich: Vermont Counterpoint
Music for a Large Ensemble
Christopher Stark, conductor
The Proms steps out of the Royal Albert Hall and into a municipal car park in Peckham to salute the man who reconnected art music to urban culture in all its drive, repetition and asymmetry.
South London favourites Christopher Stark and the Multi-Story Orchestra make their Proms debut in an all-Reich performance on their home ground.
The programme includes Reich's bright and excitable Music for a Large Ensemble - his first major work for full orchestra - and the shifting patterns of his single-movement 'octet' Eight Lines.
First broadcast 3rd September 2016.
