Throughout the coming week, we’ll be posting excerpts from   interviews with composers who have written works that respond to the  events of Sept. 11 in diverse ways. We begin our series with Steve Reich.
Although he lives and works just blocks away from the World Trade  Center, composer Steve Reich took more than eight years before he realized he would address what he  calls “unfinished business”: what became the harrowing and haunting WTC 9/11, commissioned by some longtime friends and colleagues, the Kronos Quartet.
Hear the interview and the premiere of ‘WTC 9/11.’
