This chapter presents a program note for the first performance at New York Town Hall on April 24, 1976. Music for 18 Musicians is approximately 55 minutes long. The first sketches were made for it in May 1974 and it was completed in March 1976. Although its steady pulse and rhythmic energy relate to many of Reich's earlier works, its instrumentation, harmony, and structure are new.

Keywords:   Music for 18 Musicians, rhythmic energy, instrumentation, harmony, structure
