Steve Reich unable to travel for Sónar Festival

The composer and pianist Carles Santos, one of the most reputed artists in contemporary Spanish music will substitute Steve Reich on the pieces which should have been performed by the American author. Carles Santos joins the bcn216 orchestra and chorus Synergy Vocals, maintained therefore the foreseen repertoire intact for the Sonar 2011 inaugural concert at L’Auditori Barcelona. Both programmed pieces, “Sextet” and “Music for 18 Musicians”, will be interpreted entirely and without changes.
L’Auditori Barcelona and the Sonar festival organization have invited Carles Santos to join the project, who has confirmed immediately his interest in participating as a personal homage to Steve Reich, one of his most admired composers and of whom he has already interpreted part of his work on other occasions.
