Three main works performed here, all of them classic Reich.
The first piece, 'Electric Counterpoint', hits its stride at Movement 2, which is particularly beautiful. Unfortunately the choice of steel pans for the opening movement was not the best - all the precision necessary for the articulation of Reich's pattern based music is lost and the the whole thing becomes a kind of wash. This error sets the album off to a less than impressive start..... Movement 3 is fine....
The second piece (effectively 'Six Marimbas') works very well in surround and is a faithful rendition, although without the surround mix there is nothing much to distinguish this from the version on Reich's Sextet/Six Marimbas album. It is worth noting that in this version all the parts are performed (multi-tracked) by Kuniko, pulling the piece more in line with the concept of the Counterpoint pieces).
The final piece 'Vermont Counterpoint', initially scored for multi-tracked flutes, is perhaps the biggest departure with this new instrumentation. It is good but somewhat lacking in low end (I guess because the original was for flutes).
All in all the surround mix is intelligently and creatively done and really does sound fantastic and the performances are tight and meticulous.
