Steve Reich: New Double Sextet HPS is Award Winner

(June 2011)

 

The new Hawkes Pocket Score for Steve Reich’s Double Sextet recently won a Paul Revere award in publishing excellence for graphic excellence in a Full Score, Maggie Heskin was the Editor.


 

There are two identical sextets in Double Sextet. Each one is comprised of flute, clarinet, vibraphone, piano, violin and cello. Doubling the instrumentation was done so that, as in so many of my earlier works, two identical instruments could interlock to produce one overall pattern. For example, in this piece you will hear the pianos and vibes interlocking in a highly rhythmic way to drive the rest of the ensemble.
