Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Making their harmonia mundi debut, New York-based Ensemble Signal performs Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians (1974-76), a seminal work by a pioneering composer who changed the course of 20th Century music. Steve Reich says, ''Signal has made an extraordinary recording of Music for 18 Musicians. Fast moving, spot on and emotionally charged. Take a listen.''

Review

Best Classical Music Recordings of 2015
--The New York Times

Even if more recordings are released next year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this work, Steve Reichs instant classic, none will likely be more sensational than this...the augmented players of the Ensemble Signal joyously meld rhythmic precision and transparency of sound with a startling ability to shade colors.
-- The New York Times

Two more things make the release, to my mind, the best Ive ever heard. First is the great rhythmic complexity of the score...Second, the sound is warm but clear and extremely detailed... Ensemble Signals performance is more than an inspiration; it is a miracle.
-- American Record Guide

Signals technical control and precision, combined with Lubmans ability to project the broad sweep of the work s internal dimensions, is sustained throughout the recording --Gramophone

a rhythmic profile that is both swift and loose - the tempos have a noticeable forward push, and yet the ensemble playing is so masterful that it all sounds effortlessly graceful.
-- The San Francisco Chronicle

Theres tremendous, unstoppable energy in this performance, an urgent edge to its textures and a surging power to its thrilling climaxes, that make the greatness of the music unmistakable.
--5 Stars, The Guardian UK

Two excellent recordings...exist already...But this new version, by the New York-based Ensemble Signal, bests them both...Ensemble Signal and its music director, Brad Lubman, bring the musics sounds, textures, and shapes into amazingly sharp focus. --The Boston Globe

For accuracy, transparency, and sheer joie de musique, they beat even the 1978 ECM recording led by Reich...It helps that the engineering is magnificent, every texture audible but not underlined in that early digital way.
-- 5 Stars, Stereophile

A dazzling new recording of Reichs early masterpiece, one that consistently comes up trumps for vivacity, freshness and hypnotic beauty. --5 Stars, Classical Music Magazine
