What Makes it Great: Steve Reich

In honor of his wining the Pulitzer, Rob Kapilow’s dedicated an episode of “What Makes it Great” to Steve Reich’s Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ.

As always, Kapilow provides a good, accessible explanation that can serve as a good starting point for those who aren’t familiar with Reich and minimalism, or for those who are familiar but maybe never really “got” it in the past.
