On May 7 & 8 2011 we celebrated Steve Reich's 75th birthday. Reverberations included the European premiere of his string quartet WTC 9/11; the UK premiere of his Mallet Quartet by the Amadinda Quartet; and the UK premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning piece Double Sextet by Eighth Blackbird and the London premiere of 2x5 by Bang on a Can. It was a busy weekend.
