The program includes the Gramophone Award-nominated Double Sextet, a funky, off-kilter jam session, and Mallet Quartet, a lush, dark, jazz-infused sonic tapestry, and concludes with Reich’s epic, mesmerizing musical road trip, Music for 18 Musicians, featuring some of America’s finest young performers.
