Reich, Steve - Different Trains / Piano Phase - Duke Quartet (The)


149 kr - Ej i lager

The Duke Quartet
Andrew Russo, piano; Marc Mellits, piano

Black Box presents a recording of two seminal works by Steve Reich, one of the most influential composers of the 20th & 21st centuries, and a world premiere recording of a piece by his protégé, Marc Mellits

Without a doubt one of the most important composers of the previous and current centuries, Steve Reich has had an enormous influence on modern music of many genres. This album is released to tie in with his 70th birthday celebrations this Autumn, which include a high-profile series of concerts at London's Barbican Centre

Piano Phase, one of Reich's earlier works, experiments with two pianists playing repetitive loops, which gradually phase in and out of time with each other, creating a mesmerising effect

Different Trains, considered one of the most significant works of the past century, is based on Reich's experiences of train journeys as a child during the late 30s and early 40s in America, and his thoughts about the kind of trains he might have been on, as a Jew, had he resided in Europe during that time. It uses pre-recorded speech samples, train sounds and music as a backing track which is then performed over, creating what has become known as a musical documentary

The Duke Quartet has championed the works of Reich and other contemporary composers, and, for the first time since the Kronos Quartet first recorded Different Trains in 1990, has recorded a new backing track. American pianist Andrew Russo is a dynamic young rising star, already very well-respected in contemporary music circles, and has recorded works by many of the great American composers for Black Box. Joining Andrew on Piano Phase is composer & pianist Marc Mellits, who was a student of Reich's and is considered a great talent in the younger generation of composers. Also featured here is the world premiere recording of one of his most recent works - String Quartet No.2

This is an excellent addition to Black Box's ongoing survey of American contemporary composers, including Adams (BBM1098), Corigliano (BBM1106), Crumb (BBM1076) and Rorem (BBM1102 & BBM1104)
