News & Reviews

  • Pitchfork has published its list of "The 200 Best Albums of the 1980s," which it hopes "represents the best of what this innovative decade has to offer." Among the "icons who defined a decade" are Steve Reich for Different Trains / Electric Counterpoint, featuring Kronos Quartet and Pat Metheny, Brian Eno and David Byrne for My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, and Laurie Anderson for Big Science.

  • Nonesuch Records' 1998 Grammy-winning recording of Steve Reich's landmark piece Music for 18 Musicians, performed by Steve Reich and Musicians, is back on vinyl. First released on vinyl in a limited run for Record Store Day 2015, the album, mastered for vinyl by Robert C. Ludwig, is now available at a new, low price, pressed on two 140-gram vinyl LPs at Pallas Manufacturing in Diepholz, Germany. The New York Times says: "It would be hard to think of any American music more important than this."

  • About This Album

    This CD box set is now available for sale in the Nonesuch Store; however, free, instant album MP3 downloads, included with other discs in the Store, are not currently available with box sets.

    Reich, collaborating with video artist Beryl Korot, re-employs the tape manipulation/cut-up techniques of his earliest work in this prescient 1993 video opera, addressing the Arab-Israeli conflict. Time called it "a breakthrough piece for Reich and a tantalizing glimpse of what opera might be like in the 21st century." The album includes only the audio component of the piece.
