The propulsive, rhythmic music of pioneering minimalist composer Steve Reich is represented by two major works: his Three Movements for Orchestra, which showcases the LA Philharmonic's percussion section; and Tehillim, his classic setting of Hebrew psalms, sung by Synergy Vocals.

Reich's minimalist style has inspired and influenced countless artists, including composers Phillip Glass and John Adams, as well as the progressive rock group King Crimson and electronic artist-producer Brian Eno.

Discoveries at Disney Concert Hall is an eclectic mix of 10 concert specials recorded live at Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and hosted by Renee Montagne. From singer-songwriters to classical, world music and Broadway stars, it's a celebration of the diversity of our thriving musical culture.
