“[Reich is] our greatest living composer” —New York Times

Stanford Commission
Hailed as “the very model of a modern chamber music band” (New York Times), Alarm Will Sound returns to Stanford with Pulitzer-winning composer Steve Reich and an electrifying all-Reich program headlined by the U.S. premiere of Radio Rewrite. Reich began work on Radio Rewrite. after hearing Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood performing Reich’s Electric Counterpoint. Mutual admiration, coupled with the music of Radiohead, fueled Reich’s inspiration for this new work.
