NY Times: New Reich 'radiant...inviting'

The New York Times' Steve Smith reviews
another concert in New York City honoring Steve Reich's 70th birthday, this one by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, led by conductor Grant Gershon. The show includes "Clapping Music" and "Tehillim" and a new work, "You Are (Variations)." Smith says of the latter, "Mr. Gershon’s sharp ensemble revealed the work as one of Mr. Reich’s most radiant, inviting creations." The LA Master Chorale has just released a recording of the work.
