Selected Works
    Pulse / Quartet
Pulse / Quartet was released by Nonesuch Records on February 2, 2018. The album includes the world-premiere recordings of Pulse for large ensemble, performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble, and Quartet for two pianos and two vibraphones, played by the Colin Currie Group. The Los Angeles Times notes the “lyricism, gorgeous instrumental textures and affecting harmonies” of Pulse, and the New York Times says of Quartet: “Written for two vibraphones and two pianos, Quartet is Mr. Reich's first piece for those two instruments alone, and the combination is ingenious and seductive, and deployed with subtle craftsmanship.”
