Different Trains, on DAME, is an incredibly vibrant and awesomely melancholy interpretation of Steve Reich ’s train works, which are inspired by his early experiences of the importance of trains in a boy’s childhood and the history of the world - the transport of millions of Jews to their deaths during WWII. The works include prerecorded tapes of people discussing their memories of WWII, the Holocaust, the sounds of trains and 3 different string quartets. Immediately ranks in the top for 2005.
