Music for 18 Musicians

An enthralling, captivating, hour-long composition by Steve Reich, performed here by Eighth Blackbird. Fittingly discovered when I was riding light through the solar system.

This is my first introduction to Steve Reich and what appears to be his pioneering minimalist music. I can’t wait to dig deeper into his large body of work, and if this piece is any indication, I have some incredible hours of music ecstasy ahead. Joy!
