Description

Drumming is a piece by minimalist composer Steve Reich, dating from 1970–1971. Reich began composition of the work after a short visit to Ghana and observing music and musical ensembles there, especially under the Anlo Ewe master drummer Gideon Alorwoyie. His visit was cut short after contracting malaria. K. Robert Schwarz describes the work as "minimalism's first masterpiece".

Drumming for eight small tuned drums, three marimbas, three glockenspiels, male and female voices, whistling and piccolo. Contains an artprint photography of Steve Reich made by Peter Moore.
