Notes & Reviews:

2008 release from composer Steve Reich, a memorial and a remembrance of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. He embarked upon the piece at the behest of Pearl's father Judea and the Daniel Pearl Foundation, an organization dedicated to cross cultural understanding through journalism, music and innovative communication. Daniel Variations is both moving and unsettling, and, for the most part, understandably dark in tone. But Reich does offer a glimmer of hope to counterbalance the sense of dread, and the piece is ultimately an uplifting one. Over the course of four movements and approximately 30 minutes, Reich juxtaposes words from Pearl's life - including his final words - with phrases taken from the Old Testament's Book Of Daniel. Nonesuch.
