Rebekah Heller plays Steve Reich and Julius Eastman

Rebekah Heller plays Steve Reich 

Rebekah Heller is one of our most productive musical citizens – ultra-bassoonist, collaborative artist, educator, and advocate for new music. On Long Play she will premiere Steve Reich’s Grand Street Counterpoint (the street both she and Steve live on!), for solo bassoon and 10 pre-recorded bassoons, based on Reich’s Cello Counterpoint from the early aughts. Rebekah will also premiere her own arrangement (painstakingly transcribed from a live cello performance by Clarice Jensen) of Julius Eastman’s driving The Holy Presence of Joan D’Arc.
