Tehillim 2009

Reich's classic work for ensemble and voices

Steve Reich’s Tehillim is an ecstatic celebration on the universal theme of joy and divine love. Featuring living Australian composers Peter Sculthorpe and Damien Ricketson’s works Threnody and In God’s Esperanto, the program is counterbalanced by Reich’s classic Music for Pieces of Wood.

Presented by the Melbourne Recital Centre as a part of Walk to the Field of Stars.
