John Cage and Morton Feldman are familiar names to those who know anything about 20th century composition. Name recognition does not always translate into performances, though, and the opportunity to hear the two works that pianist Louis Goldstein will present in Fort Worth next month comes around about as often as a comet.
The concerts are on Dec. 2nd and 3rd in Fort Worth at the Van Cliburn Recital Hall.
The Feldman work, Triadic Memories (1983) is a 90 minute study in subtle movement , and hushed shimmering harmony.
The Cage work, Sonatas & Interludes for prepared piano (1948-1950) is based on Hindu philosophy and is considered Cage’s masterpiece for prepared piano.
You can hear the Feldman on Dec 2nd and the Cage on the 3rd. Both concerts
begin at 7:30 PM at Van Cliburn Recital Hall in the Maddox-Muse Center,
330 4th Street just east of Bass Hall in downtown Fort Worth.Tickets are
available through Bass Ticketing 817 212-4280 or at the door on the
evening of the performances.
