STEVE REICH

Ruth has performed Steve Reich’s music many times in the last 2 years. She received permission from Reich to perform Piano Phase on harp and has given performances of this at London South Bank QEH, Gateshead Sage, Sound Festival Aberdeen, Cheltenham festival and Tate St Ives.  She also performed Reich’s gigantic work Four Organs in Krakow, alongside Will Gregory, Graham Fitkin and Ross Hughes on Farfisa organs. The performance took place on an enormous old steel factory, in the now desolate communist district know as Nowa Huta.   The Sacrum Profanum Festival in Krakow dedicated a week to Reich’s music, in honour of his 75th birthday. Steve Reich attended the concert and loved the performance. She has also performed Clapping Music and Sextet.
