  • about this album

    In June 1997, as the highlight to a nearly year-long international celebration of Steve Reich's 60th birthday, Nonesuch Records released a 10-CD box set retrospective of the composer's music. Entitled Works 1965–1995, the set includes a rich sampling of the works with which Reich had redefined contemporary classical music over the preceding three decades.

    This compilation includes examples from every phase of Reich’s career, from his earliest tape loop pieces such as Come Out to current recordings like his widely hailed paean to urban chaos, City Life.

    Among the highlights of Works 1965–1995 are completely new recordings of four of his classic pieces: Music for 18 Musicians, Eight Lines, Four Organs, and New York Counterpoint. These new versions of Reich’s works were recorded with Steve Reich and Musicians, Bang on a Can, and conductor Brad Lubman.

    Produced by Judy Sherman, the box set naturally features such Reich landmark works as Electric Counterpoint with guitarist Pat Metheny; his elegiac commentary on the Holocaust, Different Trains, featuring Kronos Quartet; and selections from the Reich / Korot video opera The Cave. Other stand-out tracks are The Four Sections, Tehillim, and Proverb, among others.

    The box set is accompanied by a comprehensive illustrated booklet with background information on Steve Reich, including an interview with the composer by music critic Jonathan Cott and essays on Reich by composer John Adams, conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, and Nonesuch Records President Robert Hurwitz.

    Although Reich is identified with the Minimalist movement for the spare and stark rigors of his earlier works, he has evolved into a composer of complex vision. This compendium traces his journey from youthful experiments with found sound to multi-layered works for groups ranging from chamber ensembles to full orchestras, and from single-track tape to multiple-channel video. As Works 1965–1995 aptly demonstrates, the composer has remained faithful to the elements of his style while developing into one of the most important and influential musicians working today.
