Steve Reich - Double Sextet Excerpt

The album Double Sextet/2x5 was released earlier this fall. Anyone who has followed Reich's work for any length of time will have a very good idea of what to expect. Reich's work over the last several decades has slowly evolved, revealing some new nuance each time. I haven't had a chance to pick up the album just yet, but at some point when time and money permit that's on my short list of recordings to score. My first exposure to his work was from the original recording of Music for 18 Musicians on ECM, which was released while I was in my early teens. Suffice it to say, it was one of a number of influences that would open my ears to a multitude of artists working just outside the beaten path.
