Different Trains / Electric Counterpoint LP + MP3 Bundle

Out Of Stock


Nonesuch Records' 1989 recording of Steve Reich's Different Trains, the Grammy Award winner for Best Contemporary Composition, and Electric Counterpoint has returned on vinyl. The album features the first recordings of the two pieces, performed by Kronos Quartet and Pat Metheny, respectively. The New York Times declared Different Trains "a work of such originality that 'breakthrough' seems the only possible description." Pitchfork called it a "late-career masterpiece" and named the album among the 200 Best of the 1980s.
