A remarkable discovery of over 75 minutes of Morton Feldman's music. This disc represents 13 unrecorded early works spanning 1950 to 1953, many previously unpublished. Highlights: his only works for magnetic tape, 'Intersection,' realized in 8-channels by Feldman with John Cage and Earle Brown.
Considered lost
, the work has been restored and presented here for the first time in 40 years. Also: his score for 2 cellos to Hans Namuth's film of Jackson Pollock, presented in its entirety including narration by Pollock himself; the solo piano collection 'Nature Pieces' which combine elements of Feldman's youth with his mature style; previously missing works from the Extensions and Intermission cycles. The performances are superbly played by pianist Philippe vandré and the Turfan Ensemble from Frankfurt."
