Notes and Editorial Reviews



A new all-Reich collection from Colin Currie and his diverse collaborators explores a wide range of the composer's output, from the quintessential Clapping music (which Colin here performs as a duet with the composer himself) to lesser known works for more unexpected combinations of instruments and voices.

-----

REVIEW:

A powerful rhythmic incisiveness and assertiveness that marked the group’s excellent recording of Drumming is again apparent throughout. Synergy Vocals impart a beautiful, haunting performance, whose quiescence quietly defuses the energy and explosiveness of the rhythmic pieces.
