An important moment for modern classical music. This concert coincided with the unveiling of a new music programming policy at New York's WNYC, at that time the "broadest commitment to modern music made to date by any classical music station in the country." The performance brought together Reich and Glass, but also avant-garde jazz composer Sun Ra, poet Ashbery, choreographer Lar Lubovitch, and percussionist/sound designer David Van Tieghem.

11 x 17 inches. Near Fine with some age-toning and minor wear at the edges.
