Notes & Reviews:

With this new disc, æon celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of John Cage, born on September 5, 1912 in the United States. This recording of the Sonatas & Interludes for prepared piano, some of the most emblematic works in his catalog, presents one of the great classics of 20th century music performed by young Swiss pianist Cédric Pescia. The interpretation is luminous, featuring unrivalled sensitivity and perceptiveness.

Sunday Times, July 2012
Pescia makes the 16 little single-span sonatas and four interludes ping, ring and clatter as well as anyone - better than most.

The Guardian, July 2012
This is a wonderfully fluid performance of one of the most beguiling keyboard works of the last 100 years...Pescia is wonderful at exploiting the resources created by his careful preparation of the piano with the screws, nuts and bolts, and pieces of rubber and plastic that Cage specifies; there's a hypnotic beauty to his playing that seems entirely unselfconscious.
