Don’t miss pianist Vicky Chow (Bang on a Can All-Stars, Contagious Sounds) when she returns to Vancouver with a brilliant, tour de force programme: Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and the North American premiere performance of Steve Reich’s Piano Counterpoint.
2013 marks the 100th Anniversary of the premiere of Rite of Spring, a piece that caused riots at its premiere and influenced generations of composers, including Steve Reich.
Join in the celebrations of Stravinsky’s Rite and witness a live performance of a new work from Reich, whom The New Yorker calls “the most original musical thinker of our time.”
>>Music on Main has been hailed for realizing “brilliant ideas” (Georgia Straight) with programming that has “spanned the range of human experience” (Huffington Post)<<
Since 2009 they have presented sold-out collaborations with the PuSh Festival at Heritage Hall, including performances of Steve Reich’s Drumming and Four Organs.
