Product description

Product description

Alaram Will Sound - Ossia - Alan Pierson, direction

Reich's music moves along in a stately, orderly, almost mathematical way, so one wouldn't expect a wide variety of interpretive styles in different performances. Still, this recording of Tehillim, at least the third issued so far, seems sharper in focus and rhythm than the first ECM recording, the only one to include the composer's participation. The Desert Music sounds somewhat different here from its premiere Nonesuch recording by Michael Tilson Thomas with the Brooklyn Philharmonic and Chorus--the ensembles it was written for. This "revised chamber version" by the composer from 2001 uses smaller forces, losing something in grandeur while gaining rhythmic clarity.

It's becoming obvious that Reich's music will survive his own performing career and lifetime. Here is an example of a disc with no performing ties to the composer, yet it is still extremely satisfying. It is also very well recorded and generously programmed, since the premiere recordings of the two works took up a disc each. Cantaloupe Music provides sung texts and lists of the performers but not a word of programme notes, a distinct liability in this otherwise admirable release. --Leslie Gerber
