New York School: Feldman, Cage, Wolff, Brown / Ensemble Avantgarde

Notes & Reviews:

New York in the 1950s: Ambitious creative spirits from many different backgrounds met in the Cedar Bar and engaged in lively discussions about the future of art and music. They included the artists Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jasper Johns and the composers John Cage, Morton Feldman, Earl Brown, and Christian Wolff. Everything, absolutely everything is up for grabs. Choice of instruments? Let the interpreter decide! Tempo? Your pick! Order of the notes! You'll think of something! And behind all of this the questions: What is my role as a composer? What may I or must I spell out for the interpreter? What can I do to develop the creativity of the performers while granting them the greatest possible freedom? Liberty for All
