Meeting Steve Reich

This picture featuring South Bank chief exec Jude Kelly (right) and Head of Classical Music Gillian Moore with composer Steve Reich on Sunday caught my eye.

It’s a charming thing featuring the man himself in the company of what at first looks like two eager fans. It depicts Reich – a ‘contemporary’ composer – as a likable fellow (which he is, of course) and projects the composer as someone with celebrity appeal.

It serves as a great postcard image of Southbank’s Rest is Noise festival and gives of an altogether irresistibly warm feeling. Strangely enough, I look at the picture and rather wish I’d taken it myself.
