Amazing Performance Of Steve Reich’s Piano Phase

Peter Aidu plays Steve Reich’s Piano Phase, a work for two pianists, with with his left hand on one instrument and his right hand on the second.

While this is a unique performance and is a feat, the result seems to emphasize the synchronized phases of the two piano lines over the shifting phase relationships and the tension created by the “in-between” phase relationships.

If you’re a Reich fan, let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. this is awesome! I have a couple of people that I need to show this to! If only I could get my fingers to do that…

  2. So complex. Not easy listening, for sure, and it can drive you a little crazy if you listen to it too long, but mesmerizingly intricate, for sure. It’s like patting your head and rubbing your tummy turned up a notch.
