More Info

Sehr frhes Material (1950-1953, darunter eine Tape-Collage mit JOHN CAGE und vieles zuvor unverffentlichtes !

A remarkable discovery of over 75 minutes of Morton Feldman's music. This disc presents 13 unrecorded early works spanning 1950 to 1953, many previously unpublished.
Highlights:
His only work for magnetic tape, Intersection, realized in 8-channels by Feldman with John Cage and Earle Brown. Considered lost, the work has been restored and presented here for the first time in 40 years.
His score for 2 cellos to Hans Namuth's film of Jackson Pollock, presented in its entirety including narration by Pollock himself.
The solo piano collection Nature Pieces, which combine elements of Feldman's youth with his mature style, and the Variations written for a dance by Merce Cunningham.
Previously missing works from the Extensions and Intermission cycles.
The performances are superbly played by pianist Philipp Vandr and the Turfan Ensemble from Frankfurt. [label info]
