    Steve Reich Festival at NEC, Boston Premiere of "Daniel Variations"
    Wonge Bergmann

    This week, the New England Conservatory in Boston presents a two-day, four-concert mini-festival celebrating the music of Steve Reich. The composer will be directly involved in the events, leading rehearsals on Tuesday and working directly with Conservatory students in workshops on Wednesday. Kicking off the public events that night is a performance of Piano Phase by Stephen Drury, the festival's artistic director, and Yukiko Takagi. Closing the festival on Thursday night at Jordan Hall are two Boston premieres: City Life, by NEC Wind Ensemble, and Daniel Variations, by NEC Philharmonia. The debut recording of the latter piece is due out on Nonesuch in early 2008.
