Steve ReichRadio Rewrite/Electric Counterpoint/Piano Counterpoint ... CD
Nonesuch, 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Three different pieces by the great Steve Reich – including one world premiere! The title of the CD refers to the longest work here – "Radio Rewrite", a compelling composition based around themes from the music of Radiohead – which are then really abstracted by Reich, and taken into a sublime instrumental setting! The music is performed by the Alarm Will Sound ensemble, conducted by Alan Piersen – with instrumentation that includes two sets of vibes, two pianos, flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and viola. That piece alone is worth the price of admission – but the set also includes a great new recording of Reich's "Electric Counterpoint" – performed by Johnny Greenwood on electric guitar – and the solo piano "Piano Counterpoint", which is a new variation on Reich's "Six Pianos" from 1973. Definitely a highlight in the Steve Reich catalog – one of the best CDs of his music in years! CD
