Steve Reich

Steve Reich

"There's just a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history and Steve Reich is one of them," states The Guardian (London).
profile & recordings >>

Presented on this recording are three brand new arrangements of Steve Reich works, newly written for percussion, in celebration of his 75th birthday by one of today's most gifted percussionists.

Upon hearing the recording Steve Reich wrote: 'Kuniko Kato is a first rate percussionist who has put a lot of careful thought and hours of rehearsal into making this excellent [album]. She has created new and very beautiful arrangements.'

KUNIKO's arrangements are simply stunning and this recording exhibits elements of her Japanese heritage to create a warm, virtuosic performance.  This unique recording must be heard!
