Notes and Editorial Reviews The Four Sections (1987), a 'concerto for orchestra' in all but name, the composer reveals a full mastery of the orchestral idiom.

-- Ken Smith, Gramophone


The New York Times called 1987’s The Four Sections “Reich’s most assured work of the decade”; Michael Tilson Thomas conducts the London Symphony Orchestra. Also included: Music for Mallet, Instruments, Voices, and Organ, which the Times called “an entrancingly crystalline piece.”
