John Cage

The Works For Saxophone 3 & 4

Label: Mode

Format: 2CD

Genre: Compositional

In stock


Ulrich Krieger completes his A Cage of Saxophones survey of Cage’s works composed for, or which can be played on any instrument or instruments.  For this volume, Krieger combines works specifically composed for saxophone with works of no specified instrumentation that are suited for saxophones and winds.  Most of these are “indeterminate”works, which require the performer to create the realization based on materials supplied by Cage. In some situations, Krieger used Cage’s compositional “tools” to create his own parallel works.  The set includes the only available recording of “Party Pieces”, composed in collaboration with Henry Cowell, Lou Harrison and Virgil Thomson. In “Party Pieces”, one composer would write a bar of music plus two notes, folded the paper at the bar, passing it to the next composer, who would use the two notes as a base for continuing the composition. Composed for any melody or keyboard instruments, Krieger has made a realization for saxophone quartet.
