Reich, Steve - Berkeley November 7, 1970 vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 05-FOX 002LP
Surprisingly great sounding, early recording by Steve Reich and his ensemble, performing nearly 50 years ago (!); a set of his earliest post tape-work period when he had developed his 'minimal style', but he was still doing his tape works as well. Hugely recommended to fans.

"A live performance of four early works by Steve Reich: "Four Organs," "My Name Is," "Piano Phase," and "Phase Patterns." This 1970 performance marked an important moment in San Francisco Bay Area new music history with the triumphant return to the East Bay by Reich, who studied at Mills College with Luciano Berio and performed the 1964 world premiere of Terry Riley's seminal In C at the San Francisco Tape Music Center. The resonant acoustics of the University of California at Berkeley Museum's concrete interior were especially appropriate for "Four Organs", with its long additive sustained chords over a maraca pulse. 180-gram LP."
