What collection of the great works of Steve Reich would be complete without the mighty Drumming? The piece, scored for a percussion ensemble of marimbas, glockenspiels, tuned bongos etc., moves beautifully through an array of rhythms and counter-rhythms, following Reich’s simple-but-complex patterns. This classic 1987 recording has been remastered for this vinyl reissue on Pure Pleasure.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 26th June 2017

The thrill of Reich's propulsive beat under long serene (or ominous) tones was enormous. At first, it's audaciously simple to the point that a casual listener would call idiotic. Very gradually, with incredible precision and patience, the ensemble gradually shifts out of synch, then starts filling in spaces. Eventually (but not for a long time!) Reich brings in variety with tones and different timbres. It's dry and clean, it's virtuosic and athletic (what stamina and concentration they must have), and it's fun.
