Phases - Steve Reich
A Nonesuch Retrospective - celebrating the work and life of composer Steve Reich
'Phases' opens with what is arguably Reich's signature work, 'Music For Eighteen Musicians', performed by Reich and his longtime ensemble. However, each piece here, culled from Reich's Nonesuch discography, warrants a significant spot in any overview of his career, from the semi-autobiographical, often deeply moving 'Different Trains', played by Kronos Quartet, to the rhythmically and spiritually adventurous 'You Are (Variations)', written for, and performed by the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
“I never thought I’d look forward to turning 70,” says Steve Reich. “To say I’m honoured is definitely an understatement.”
“…Phases is now the best option for anyone looking to acquire an instant Steve Reich back catalogue collection. …covering all the significant areas of Reich's career in a well-proportioned, musically intelligent way.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2006 ****
