… je Steve Reichs familienaam uitspreekt als “Rysh”. Maar niet getreurd voor wie altijd al “Rike” volgens de Duitse uitspraak zei: zoon Ezra Reich prefereert deze uitspraak ook.
“It's an anglicization. I'm not sure what my grandfather said when he came here, but my father always said Reich, as though it were "sh," so that's what I said, and then I started going to Germany, and realized it was Reich "rike" – my son insists on that pronounciation, with the k. So I'm a "rysh" and he's a "rike." I think it was common for Jews who had that last name to change the pronunciation when they got to America.”
