...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Steve Reich first visited Budapest in the summer of 1977. His trip was at the invitation of New Music Studio. Reich gave four lectures, analyzed and presented several of his works from recordings, and also performed live a few of his compositions. He performed an early, iconic work, Piano Phase for two instruments, with Zoltán Jeney. Of the pieces played from tape, Music for 18 Musicians was at that time his latest. Katalin Komlós wrote this about it: “It is an inimita  ble work, which, in addition to its perfect elaboration and combined application of techniques experimented on in many earlier pieces, is above all simply beautiful music impacting on the senses and, as such, enchanting for the audience.” The Hungary contacts of the American composer who was 85 this October have, over four decades, become ever stronger. This is in no small part due to Amadinda Percussion Group, so it is only natural that this commemorative concert should include  Mallet Quartet dedicated to Amadinda as well.
