  • Collected together, these two of composer Steve Reich's most ambitious pieces written for orchestra are stunning recordings, played with great depth of feeling and color while adhering to the precision acrobatics in the scores. Performed by Alarm Will Sound and Ossia, both under the direction of conductor Alan Pierson, these performances are far more dramatic and atmospheric than the ones Reich recorded with his own ensemble in the 1980s. That verve and flair, which gives away nothing in terms of crisp dynamic, together with a deeply focused adherence to tempo and intonation, make for a stellar album at the very least. On record, these are the definitive performances of these works. ~ Thom Jurek
