Choir of Trinity Wall Street at The Shed - Reich Richter Pärt (Ensemble)

  • The Shed West 30th Street (between 10th and 11th Aves) New York, NY 10001 United States (map)

A World Premiere Shed Commission

In Reich Richter Pärt two immersive live performances—one conceived by composer Steve Reich and painter Gerhard Richter, the other by Richter and composer Arvo Pärt—explore the shared sensory language of visual art and music. The Richter Pärt partnership builds on a concept originally developed by Alex Poots and Hans Ulrich Obrist for the Manchester International Festival and will feature Pärt’s captivating choral composition together with Richter’s new work. The Reich Richter pairing, a Shed commission, examines the intersection between Richter’s formula for his “Patterns” series and Reich’s rigorous, repeating musical structures in a genre-crossing film made in collaboration with Corinna Belz and featuring the world premiere of a new Reich composition.
