    Listen: Steve Reich Talks with WNYC's "New Sounds" About "Reich/Richter" at The Shed
    WNYC / New Sounds

    Composer Steve Reich was on WNYC's New Sounds on Friday to discuss his new piece, Reich/Richter. The piece premiered as part of Reich Richter Pärt, a live performance-exhibition pairing works by Gerhard Richter with the new Reich piece and extant work by Arvo Pärt, at The Shed in New York City on Saturday for the new venue's Opening Weekend. Reich/Richter examines the intersection between Richter's formula for his "Patterns" series and Reich's repeating musical structures in a genre-crossing film made with director Corinna Belz. You can hear the conversation along with a live recording of Reich's piece Runner, a precursor to Reich/Richter, on New Sounds below.

    Reich/Richter will be performed by Ensemble Signal and the International Contemporary Ensemble, in alternation, at The Shed through June 2; for tickets, visit theshed.org.

    The New Sounds episode also includes "Valencia," a piece from Caroline Shaw's forthcoming album, Orange, performed by Attacca Quartet. The album will be released a week from Friday, on April 19, from New Amsterdam / Nonesuch Records, and is available to pre-order here. Attacca Quartet will perform music from the album at WNYC's The Green Space in New York City this Friday as part of that venue's tenth anniversary marathon celebration.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
