One of our latest signings, Benjamin Mellefont, Principal Clarinet, performs Steve Reich’s New York Counterpoint, a composition intended to capture the throbbing vibrancy of Manhattan.

This programme is packed with revolutionary music from the Baroque era with Bach’s Allemande right up to the modern day: the kaleidoscopic music of Lindberg’s Steamboat Bill Jr. and the intense duo Charisma written in homage to the French composer Jean-Pierre Guézec.

Steve Reich is an A Level AQA Named Artist.
