Re: Steve Reich question

stig moth,

yes, i think you'll dig reich.  i'm a violinist in his band for 10 years
now, and there is lot's of interesting stuff to explore.  I would suggest
the following...

1. An Internet Search (just to find out a bit about the progression of his
2.  Nonesuch just released a HUGE cd collection of all his current work
3  And last but not least, here is the list of the order of his major
compositions.... in chronological order.  You'll notice he started out with
tape pieces, then phasing instrumental pieces, and then moved on to 
works.  enjoy, hope this helps, please let us (on the list) know if you 
any other questions.  perhaps someone else will respond as well...
4.  if you have to start with only one cd, i'd recommend the different
trains/electric counterpoint cd  with the kronos quartet/pat metheny.  
wise i'd recommend starting at the beginning.  it's worth it to see the
progression.  And as the very important composer that he is, I think a good
collection of work in hand is a wise educational tool for all of us..l.
