Steve Reich – 1989 – Different Trains [Kronos Quartet] – Electric Counterpoint [Pat Metheny]

Different Trains (1988) will probably go down in history as Reich’s masterpiece. And deservedly so. Reich’s phase-shifting minimalism is made dazzlingly entertaining in Different Trains, which is scored for string quartet and digitally sampled voices that repeat bits of speech concerning trains and Reich’s experience with them growing up. The sinister part here is than some trains carried Jews to death camps. That’s here as well. The Kronos Quartet has also never sounded better.

Different Train is one of Steve Reich’s most talked-about pieces. It was inspired by his personal memories of his experience as a child riding trains a lot all over the United States to visit each of his divorced parents, & also interviews he did with holocaust survivors about their experiences aboard European trains in WWII. The string quartet’s job is mostly to match speech melody, & there are other trainy sounds mixed in, too. The music is very muscular, very compelling.

During the war years, Reich made train journeys between New York and Los Angeles to visit his parents, who had separated. Years later, he pondered the fact that, as a Jew, had he been in Europe instead of the United States at that time, he might have been travelling in very different trains.

Electric Counterpoint (1987) has one guitar–Pat Metheny in this case– playing to 10 pre-recorded motifs, also on guitar.

Electric Counterpoint is some of Reich’s most beautiful music if you ask me. Each note is absolutely clear; the music changes gradually in increments with great awareness of keeping the listener never bored but always interested. The guitar virtuosity of Pat Metheny does a lot for the piece, too. For one thing, Reich finished his drafts of the music with Metheny telling him where the notes could go given the physical shape of guitars. For me, Electric Counterpoint is probably much more enjoyable to listen to than Different Trains. Wonderful music.

Sub Rosa presents part 1 of a vast anthology of noise and electronic music to be released during the next years in seven volumes. An Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music Vol.1 begins in the 1920s, with the Russolo Brothers, and looks at each decade in turn — Varese, Cage, Schaeffer, Xenakis,the great pioneers — and shows the first traces of a music that was necessarily revolutionary: electronic music, created from nothing (and hence to be entirely invented).

Some pieces on these CDs are certainly classics, but there are others, which, though old, were distributed informally or never even released. The more contemporary pieces are, wherever possible, previously unreleased. In fact, more than the half of what we listen here is unreleased and unpublished.

This 2 CD set comes with a 36 page booklet with profiles of the musicians and comments on the tracks. Sub Rosa have done an excellent job with packaging and documentation.
