STEVE REICH: Drumming, Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ, Six Pianos (Limited 180g Vinyl 3LP)

Originally released in 1974 in a 3-LP set, and now re-presented in 180 g heavyweight vinyl pressed by Optimal, with new, unique documentation, Drumming was a landmark recording in Steve Reich’s early career. This is the first time the recordings are being offered on LP since their original release.

Recorded in the Polydor Studios in Hamburg in January 1974, the set was recognized as a breakthrough in Reich’s career. It comprised his longest work to date, Drumming of 1970-71, lasting nearly an hour and a half, and two newer works of 1973, Six Pianos and Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ.
