American composer Steve Reich

Grzegorz Bojanek :: Analogue (Twice Removed)
Steve Reich / Ensemble Avantgarde :: Four Organs / Phase Patterns / Pendulum Music (Karlrecords)
Dirk Geiger :: Connected Worlds (Tympanik Audio)
Son Kite :: Prisma (Iboga)

Concerts of holiday favorites, the “Messiah” and other seasonal staples are the norm this month, but the American Symphony Orchestra offered an antidote to festive cheer last week at Carnegie Hall with a program called “Requiem for the 20th Century.” Appalled at the state of the world?
