Watch London Sinfonietta principal violinist Jonathan Morton perform Steve Reich’s Violin Phase. In the video, which was made by digital productions manager Adam Flynn, Morton plays all four parts simultanesouly - a rendition that Reich himself called ‘the most satisfactory version that I’ve ever heard and seen’. You can watch Reich’s interview about the performance here. The London Sinfonietta also released a ‘making-of’ clip on its Twitter page, explaining how the project came to life.
