Writings About Music

A Massive Bedrock

My sense is that more than anyone else, Steve Reich led the way for Western composers out of the desert of serialism. His example is a massive bedrock the rest of us may build upon in wildly varying directions. I will always be indebted to Steve for taking time out of his busy schedule (after being asked by Leonard Altman) to guide me with some extremely important pointers at a critical crossroad.
