Steve Reich

As a matter of fact, I personally would much rather hear Perotin than Mozart.More Steve Reich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't care how much people understand what it is that I'm doing, except if they're players in my ensemble or other ensembles. I just want people to be moved by the music. If you're not moved by the music, then everything else falls away. You're not interested in the text, you're not interested in how it was done, and you're not interested in interviewing the composer and all the rest of it.More Steve Reich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What I don't want to do is to go and buy a bunch of exotic-looking drums and set up an Afrikanische Musik in New York City.More Steve Reich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the pop world, instead of saying I want to get an album by such and such a group, it's better to say I like this particular tune and that one I like less. I think it's much better to get involved with an artist instead of riding up and down the works you like and disregard the works you don't like.More Steve Reich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Up to the age of 14 I had not heard a note of anything before 1750, never heard a note of Bach, never heard anything after Wagner, and never heard any real jazz.More Steve Reich quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
