In stock


This CD highlights an exceptional document, a performance recorded by radio station WBAI in New York on September 12th, 1964. This event superbly represents the type of repertoire that Charlotte Moorman and Nam June Paik cultivated and proposed in the U.S., in the years following their meeting, in their memorable "duo" exhibitions. The program of the concert presented several true war-horses of their exhibitions like "26'1.1499 for a String Player" by John Cage, "Duet II" by Toshi Ichiyanagi, a work by Giuseppe Chiari titled "Per Arco," written for the cellist and dedicated to her, the premiere of Earle Brown's "Synergy," a rare and delightful duet with Terry Jennings on saxophone, an almost systematic version of "Plus Minus" by Karlheinz Stockhausen aided by Paik's Robot. The history of the avant-garde! One of the four Charlotte Moorman CDs originally included in the Cello Anthology box, now individually available for the first time.

Cat. number: plana-M 27NMN.064.1
