The tenth episode our birthday series on the occasion of Steve Reich’s 80th birthday in Oktober 2016, the recent years: the 90’s. Reich composes his first opera, in which he expertly combines the old with the new. His faith keeps playing a big part in his choice of music, orchestra and lyrics. He keeps flowing within the minimalist stream.
