It's that version that's played here, although. Bang on a Can, eighth blackbird.

Eighth Blackbird/Bang on a Can (Nonesuch). Nonesuch has been documenting Steve Reich's career for more than 20 years now, generally with the soloists and ensembles for whom each of the works was composed. This latest release brings the story up to last year, when Bang on a Can gave the first performance of 2 x 5 at the Manchester festival. The Double Sextet had appeared the previous year, and was awarded a Pulitzer prize, rather belated recognition of arguably the most influential American composer alive.
