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.

  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. Amazing performance. The camera work was great too, especially the closeups that let you see his hands.

  3. 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.
