Description

Composer’s note:
Pulse, for winds, strings, piano and electric bass, was completed in 2015 and was, in part, a reaction to my Quartet of 2013 in which I changed keys more frequently than in any previous work. In Pulse I felt the need to stay put harmonically and spin out smoother wind and string melodic lines in canon over a constant pulse in the electric bass and piano. From time to time this constant pulse is accented differently through changing had alternation patters on the piano. All in all, a calmer, more contemplative piece lasting about 16 minutes.”
- Steve Reich 2015 -
