"Reich played by Reich experts...The live recording lifts the drama - you feel right on the edge of every beat."
- BBC Music Magazine
"With performances by Steve Reich and Musicians – Reich’s own group – becoming a far less regular occurrence these days, it has been left largely to others to record and perform his music...Among the most important to make their mark on Reich’s music is the Colin Currie Group.."
"An exceptionally strong program through these great, adventurous pieces "
- Opus Klassiek
"This is a really wonderful disc of music performed by Colin Currie and his ensemble with Steve Reich as part of a series of events that they were running at the Foundation Louis Vuitton in Paris."
