9/10 Jack Customer review, 1st June 2016
This is one of the works and recordings that put minimalism on the map. Riley's In C has been called the The Rite of Spring of our time. This first recording led the way to the many other versions that appeared but this is the first and the best. Since this landmark recording, there have been other noteworthy versions. I heard an interesting one by the Shanghai Film Orchestra, which includes a number of Chinese instruments which create a uniquely shimmering texture. But this one was the first, and has its own place in history.
