1979 · New York
In the 1970s and 1980s, Carnegie Hall-as well as forward-looking radio stations such as WKCR and WNYC-hosted a number of important performances by Steve Reich, some of which were formal debuts (e.g., "Music for 18 Musicians" in October 1978), and others that were creative combinations of important avant-garde artists (Sun Ra, John Ashbery, David van Tieghem). This particular performance brought together a stellar grouping that included classical composers (Philip Glass), art rockers (John Cale), and avant-garde jazz (Leroy Jenkins). One of a number of events produced by critic and historian Tim Page.
