Steve Reich is probably the most remix-ready of contemporary classical composers, which makes this project a good idea whose time should have come long ago. His minimalist twelve-tone symphonettes are constructed around trippy circular riffs that just beg to be sliced up into loops and juxtaposed against steely drum-machine rhythms. Happily, the nine mixmaster generals on Reich Remixed have radically different notions of how to go about doing this. The British duo Coldcut pile mushrooming synths and modern-primitive beats onto Reich's classic "Music for 18 Musicians," rattling his serene dreamscape with ambient-techno mayhem. Nobukazu Takemura taps into the becalming spirituality of "Proverb" by adding a gently pulsing electronic undertow and a soaring choirboy vocal. And, true to form, DJ Spooky delves into pure metal-machine music abstraction with his take on "City Life." Reich purists may take issue with Remixed, but if it leads a few inquiring minds to check out the original recordings, it's a mission accomplished. (RS 811)
Steve Reich - Tehillim/Three Movements for Orchestra (1994)

Classical | EAC (APE & CUE) | 214 MB

Tehillim begins with a joyful noise that just about bypasses the brain altogether and heads directly for the feet. It has the fascination of watching intricate clockwork. In Three Movements for Orchestra Reich exploits instrumental ambiguities. One part "inserts" its notes in between the notes of another part. The pulse "moves" from left to right and back throughout the movement as various instruments take it up, and there's a kind of overlap of instrumental colors as if you're forced to listen with two sets of ears - one set catches the constant pulse as it shifts position; the other catches, through the different instrumental colors, the individual rhythms that make up the pulse.

Dimenticate quello che credete di sapere sul capitalismo come lo conosciamo oggi.
Dimenticate la diffusa convinzione che si tratti di un sistema meritocratico in cui chiunque, se lavora davvero sodo, può farcela; che quelli che non ce la fanno, i poveri, siano responsabili della loro condizione.
Dimenticate, soprattutto, l’idea che il mercato sia così com’è perché la sua razionalità intrinseca l’ha plasmato nel migliore dei modi possibili. Il mercato, come ogni cosa creata dall’uomo, può essere ordinato e regolato in molti modi alternativi, e chi ne decide le regole è la politica…

The music of Steve Reich has been heard in various venues, including electronic music dance clubs, but the full symphony orchestra treatment has been rare. That is changing, however, with the tenure of Kristjan Järvi as chief conductor of the Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the result in that musically conservative, German city is this major-label double album of Reich's music, in many respects a first. Järvi's enthusiasm for the project is palpable here, most obviously in the live performance of the early Reich standard Clapping Music, which he and the composer perform together to the approval of the crowd.

This late-'80s work finds the minimalist composer mixing acoustic and taped material to great effect. The disc's centerpiece is "Different Trains," a work that frames Reich's impressions of his boyhood train trips between his mother in Los Angeles and his father in New York; Reich also intersperses references to the much more harrowing train rides Jews were forced to take to Nazi concentration camps. Using the fine playing of the Kronos Quartet as a base, Reich layers the work with the taped train musings of his governess, a retired Pullman porter, and various Holocaust survivors – vintage train sounds from the '30s and '40s add to the riveting arrangement. And for some nice contrast, Reich recruits guitarist Pat Metheny to create a similarly momentous piece in "Electric Counterpoint" (Metheny plays live over a multi-tracked tape of ten guitars and two electric basses). Two fine works by Reich in his prime.

A l'exception de l'ouvrage de Richard Evans (mais il est en trois volumes); pas de synthèse récente notamment de la part des historiens français. …

Durante il nazismo alcuni fisici cercarono di dar vita a una fisica ariana che escludesse ogni "idea giudaica", molti altri fecero compromessi e concessioni pur di continuare a lavorare. Tra questi vi erano tre fisici di levatura mondiale, attraverso i quali Philip Ball racconta la storia della fisica tedesca sotto Hitler. Max Planck, il pionere della teoria dei Quanti, universalmente stimato per la condotta morale che seppe mantenere durante il regime; Peter Debye, un fisico nederlandese che arrivò a dirigere il più importante istituto di ricerca del Reich prima di andarsene negli Stati Uniti nel 1940; Werner Heisenberg, lo scopritore del principio di indeterminazione, che ebbe un ruolo di primo piano nella corsa tedesca alla bomba atomica…
