Notes & Reviews:

In 1944 John Cage was invited to participate in "The Imagery of Chess" exhibition at the Julien Levy Gallery in New York City. He contributed a painting entitled Chess Pieces. Cage expert Margaret Leng Tan set about transcribing the music in the painting into a playable score which receives its premiere recording here. Also included is Ms. Tan's long-awaited recording of Cage's prepared piano masterpiece, the Sonatas and Interludes of 1946-48 and the only other musical score from "The Imagery of Chess" show, neo-classical composer Vittorio Rieti's Chess Serenade.
