Notes & Reviews:

With this 3-CD set Cage specialist and champion Giancarlo Simonacci continues his foray into the piano works of John Cage. Perhaps most interesting about this disc is Simonacci's full-faith approach to Cage's compositional cues, specifically the indication for the performer to fully exploit freedom of interpretation in true experimental fashion. Using extended techniques Simonacci forges an authoritative performance that challenges the listener's perception of the constitution of music and sound.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Simonacci performs on a beautiful sounding Fazioli and the engineering is flawless. The liner notes describe the release as the fourth volume of a series. Judging from this one, the other three will be well worth the time it takes to seek them out.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2012
Simonacci crafts every sound, and collection of sounds, with great sensitivity and precision...Simonacci is not afraid to give the material the space it needs and he correctly ensures that silence is as important as sound. The recording is superb, offering great clarity.
