Album Review

Nonesuch's 1998 issue of Music for 18 Musicians was originally released as part of the ten-disc box set Works. It's a new digital recording (from 1996) of Reich's most famous piece, and it's the only single-disc release of the piece. It's a fine, nearly definitive, recording of one of the most influential contemporary classical compositions of the late 20th century.

Customer Reviews

How does one review a Masterpiece ?

I'm not a fan of the whole minimalist game, it's really not my dish of tapioca. I find composers like Glass and Adams extremely untasteful, and that their contributions toward contemporary music have done more damage than good. But Steve Reich clearly knows what he's doing, and there is no better example of what MUSIC -- not just minimalism, can acheive. He really outdid himself.

A Beautiful Dream

I've just listened to this twice this evening. I love it. It is a dream, a beautiful relationship. I've been listening to it for about 25 years in various forms (first on vinyl) and I still find it fascinating. I do like minimalism, but this is so beautiful that I always feel better for listening to it. And yes, a masterpiece.
