Essential for Contemporary Music Fans
V. B. Lewis | Silver Spring, Maryland, USA | 11/18/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a really splendid recording of a splendid performance. I bought the old ECM recording led by Reich when I was in college 20 years ago and liked it a lot. It's still available and still worth hearing, but I think this one is better. There's something about the atmosphere of the (live) performance that's lacking in the older recording and the sonics are excellent. This work is a real classic of contemporary music and ultimately much deeper as an exemplar of "minimalism" than the somewhat more popular works by Glass. Repeated listening reveals nuance and subtlety that make it a genuine essential, I think."
Astounding

"I've listened to many versions of Reich's beautiful piece, but this one somehow feels the most rich. The opening Pulses section is mesmerizingly full in sound, and captures the feeling of beauty and mystery in the piece better than other productions, whose starts just feel flat in comparison."
Have just ordered, and heard great things...

"Reich has said himself, (and you might want to note that he is not usually positive about Europian recordings of his own works), but he said that the Hungarians "..really know how to play this stuff!". Ive heard the first "Pulses" and it has an energetic sound, and the instruments have been captured well for a live recording. Guess I'll find out soon about the rest! Would be worth buying just to hear another version of the piece."
