Steve Reich

Rotterdam, yesterday: my favourite composer Steve Reich performed in de Doelen concert hall! At last a chance to see him in real life. He himself performed clapping music (1972). They played other compositions as well: music for woods, different trains and Tehellim. After the concert there was an interview about his background and influences. I had to drive a long way to Rotterdam, but it was worth it. I made the sketch during the performance.
Gisteravond naar een concert van Steve Reich. Eindelijk heb ik hem zien spelen! Hij speelde clapping music. Verdere composities werden gespeeld: different trains, music for woods en Tehellim. Fantastisch.
