Beautiful collection of Morton Feldman's earliest, shorter piano works from the early 50s, going through the late 70s

Beautiful collection, primarily made up of Morton Feldman's earliest, shorter piano works from the early 50s, going through the late 70s. A much needed compendium to all the essential documentation of his later, intensely long works that have been coming out (mainly on Hat Art). Performances here by Feldman himself, David Tudor, Cornelius Cardew, John Tilbury and others. "In his compositions for piano, which make up a central part of his oeuvre and in which all of his experience is accumulated, it is the play of Feldman's hand whose touch is intended precisely for the 'untouchableness' of sound. The clear character of the 'attack' thus displays the paradox of such playing: it is just as much about concealing the idiosyncrasy of the piano sound, the precise point of attack while, at the same time, the structure and tension of those sounds are formed by the hand."- Stefan Schadler.

Typically nice RZ packaging. Includes the following works: Piano Three Hands (1957, performed by Feldman & Tilbury); Intermission 5 (1952, performed by Feldman); Vertical Thoughts 2 (1963, performed by Janos Negyesy: violin & Cardew: piano), Extensions 3 (1952, performed by Feldman); Four Instruments, 1975 (1979); Intermission 5 (1952, performed by Tudor), Piano Piece 1956 A (1956, performed by Tudor); Piano Piece 1956 B (1959, performed by Tudor); Intersection 3 (1953, performed by Tudor); Instruments 1, 1974 (1975, 24 minute piece performed by Eberhard Blum: flute, Nora Post: oboe, Garrett List: Posaune, Joseph Kubera: celesta, Jan Williams: drums).
