From Steve Reich’s masterly Music for Pieces of Wood (1973), borne from a desire to make music with the simplest possible means and ‘one of the loudest pieces I have ever composed’, to Brian Ferneyhough’s tiny but striking tribute to his teacher Klaus Huber, this dynamic programme from the Guildhall Percussion Ensemble forms part of the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s acclaimed Total Immersion series.
