Notes & Reviews:

The works for violoncello solo recorded and compiled on this CD by Friedrich Gauwerky are reference works for John Cage's unusual way of composing. Apart from the tones, Cage also helped to put the varied forms of silence on the musical map. 59 1/2 Seconds, one of his "time-length pieces," ranks among Cage's most radical "graphic" compositions. Stars become notes or noises in Atlas Eclipticalis - again without a score. Variations I, written for any number of people using any sort and number of sound-producing means, Cage's composition reached the outmost limit on the way to absolute indetermination. But, if one hears Etudes Boreales for cello solo, however, one experiences that it is a piece whose status can only be compared with J.S. Bach's cello compositions.
