i didn’t hear the falling leaves
and now they’re rotting underneath
how was i to have a clue?
you didn’t tell me…

This caught me a bit unprepared.

Steve Reich just released a new album. I wonder how I could not expect it, but hey, here it is!

The title piece references two songs by the English band Radiohead. Alan Pierson conducts this premiere recording of Radio Rewrite, which was composed in 2012.

The album also includes recordings of Electric Counterpoint (1987) and Piano Counterpoint, which is a 2011 transcription by Vincent Corver of Reich’s 1973 Six Pianos. The works are performed, respectively, by Radiohead’s guitarist, Jonny Greenwood, and pianist Vicky Chow, who is a member of the Bang on a Can All-Stars.
