Reich at the Roundhouse
Vancouver's Roundhouse will be the scene of a contemporary evening anchored by the presentation of the groundbreaking work of art from celebrated composer, Steve Reich; his composition "Different Trains", in a new collaboration with Spanish filmmaker Beatriz Caravaggio, and two pieces from minimalist composer Arvo Pärt.

Steve Reich's Different Trains, is a powerful multi-media experience that was a groundbreaking work when it was premiered by KRONOS in 1988. The building blocks of the composition are recordings of speech, that are manipulated by Reich to form the musical building blocks that drive the composition. Interviews with survivors of the Holocaust, and others, pre-recorded sounds of trains and other sounds, the work is an experience that is nothing less than revelatory.

Arvo Pärt's stirring work, Fratres, for violin and piano opens the program and the mesmerizing, and prayerful Speigle im Speigle closes the concert and the festival.

The opportunity to share this experience of these moving works of genius in the community space of The Roundhouse, where listener and performer come together in the experience promises to be a festival highlight.

Gone are the formalities of the traditional concert hall. Performers are interspersed throughout the venue and the audience is invited to stand, sit, roam, and stay for conversation with the performers.

"We live in a time when many people want a visual accompaniment for music  the brilliant multi-channel video by Beatriz Caravaggio really works  to intensify listening to Different Trains. She has taken documentary footage and through multi-channel placement and fine editing, made a thoughtful and moving piece. Bravo, Beatriz!",  Steve Reich, 2017.
