"Here, key changes are frequent and new ideas proliferate, creating a feeling of restless activity, often with a joyful spring in its step... Their percussive sounds shimmer and glow."

"...it calls for a high level of ensemble virtuosity." That virtuosity is delivered here by Reich specialists, the Colin Currie Group, to whom the composer dedicated the work."
The Irish Times, February 2018
"Here there is a quirky, and at times playful interaction between the piano and vibraphones, which leaves the piece teetering on the edge of jazz... Listening to Quartet, particularly it’s faster sections (I and III), one must take a moment to consider it is the work of four musicians, born of one mind."

"The performance by the Colin Currie Group, which specialises in Reich’s music, brings a wide colour palette. It is by turns robustly theatrical and limpidly delicate."
The Quietus, February 2018
"Two vibraphones and two pianos generate nervy energy as they hypnotically balance chance and strict structure."
Mojo, February 2018
"a lightly jazzy essay in key-confounding hypnosis on piano and vibraphone, written for and performed by Reich’s favourite percussionists, Colin Currie Group."
