Steve Reich's Drumming (1972)

In part one, Drumming (1972) - the famous work by composer Steve Reich - will be performed for the first time in Russia. The piece is characterized by its use of overlapping simple, rhythmic patterns, the length of which can be altered by the musicians, giving them freedom to create a different composition within the overall framework of the piece.
