Hot on the heels of its world premiere, the London Sinfonietta gives the second performance of Radio Rewrite, a new work from master of minimalism Steve Reich. The ideas for Radio Rewrite were inspired by the music of Radiohead. To open the concert, Reich himself will perform his famous Clapping Music.

Radio Rewrite is a co-commission by the London Sinfonietta and New York’s Alarm Will Sound.
