Ecrit en 1976 pour quatre voix de femmes et ensemble instrumental, Music For 18 Musicians est sans doute l'une des oeuvres les plus séduisantes de Steve Reich. Le compositeur américain, qu'il serait abusif de réduire au "minimalisme", fait ici la démonstration d'une inventivité harmonique et rythmique qui ne relève d'aucune école, mais qui emprunte à de multiples traditions musicales. On a pu ainsi remarquer, dans cette pièce délectable, un hommage aux premières polyphonies françaises du XIIe siècle. --Michel Marmin --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.
