The Bridgewater Hall hosts an evening of music by Steve Reich (pictured) this July, featuring a rare performance by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood. The concert will comprise the minimalist pioneer’s seminal piece Music for 18 Musicians – performed by the London Sinfonietta and Synergy Vocals – with percussionists from the chamber orchestra also playing Clapping Music, and Greenwood tackling Electric Counterpoint. The guitarist first performed the three-movement piece publicly at a Reich-themed festival in Poland in 2011, which in turn inspired the New Yorker to write a Radiohead-influence composition, Radio Rewrite.
