Different Trains, by Steve Reich, performed by the Kronos Quartet ???

Reich is an interesting composer, in that he provides minimalist music while maintaining a tonal system. There are several works on this album, the first being a set of three pieces, before, during, and after the war, which has electronic music and speech combined. It has a fascinating approach that doesn’t lead to the tediousness or monotony of a Philip Glass or other minimalists. This is not exactly an album to rush out and buy, unless you wish to dazzle your friends with the bizarre. For twentieth century exploration, it could be a quite enjoyable album to hear.
