CD (Item 131904) Nonesuch, 2018 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Two sides of legendary experimental composer Steve Reich – with one side composed for a large ensemble, the other side comparably pared down and composed for a quartet! The former is the 14+ minute "Pulse" played by the International Contemporary Ensemble, with 4 violins, a viola, flute, bass, piano and a pair of clarinets. It's not at all the drone you might expect from the title, but actually kind of soars, with the bass serving as anchor to the other loftier instrumentation. The Quartet pieces are performed by Colin Currie Group – with a pair of vibes and a pair of pianos – and bookended by 2 fast parts with a slower part between.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
