    Listen: Steve Reich Shares Playlist of Some Favorite Works
    Wonge Bergmann

    To mark last week's return of Steve Reich's Different Trains / Electric Counterpoint on vinyl for the first time in more than twenty-five years, we asked Reich to share a few of his favorite songs and compositions in a new playlist. The eclectic set includes works from across the centuries and genres, by John Coltrane, Jr. Walker & the All Stars, Miles Davis, Stravinsky, Charlie Parker, Pérotin, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, and Bach. You can hear it on Apple Music and here on Spotify:

    Nonesuch Records' 1989 recording of Steve Reich's Different Trains, the Grammy Award winner for Best Contemporary Composition, and Electric Counterpoint returned on vinyl on Friday. The album features the first recordings of the two pieces, performed by Kronos Quartet and Pat Metheny, respectively. Pitchfork recently called Different Trains a "late-career masterpiece," including the album among the 200 Best Albums of the 1980s. You can pick up a copy of the album on vinyl in the Nonesuch Store and watch a new mini-documentary about the piece here:
