Notes & Reviews:

Ulrich Krieger completes his 'A Cage of Saxophones' survey of Cage's works composed for, or which can be played on any instrument or instruments. For this volume, Krieger combines works specifically composed for saxophone with works of no specified instrumentation that are suited for saxophones and winds. Most of these are "indeterminate" works, which require the performer to create the realization based on materials supplied by Cage. In some situations, Krieger used Cage's compositional "tools" to create his own parallel works. The set includes the only available recording of "Party Pieces", composed in collaboration with Henry Cowell, Lou Harrison and Virgil Thomson.
