John Cage A Tribute

Joshua Pierce, piano & prepared piano

Robert White, tenor ~ AFMM Ensemble

From the liner notes of Eric Salzman:
“John Cage wrote for keyboards throughout most of his life. Most famously, he invented the so-called "prepared piano" but he also wrote for unprepared piano in both traditional and untraditional ways. His later piano works employ an almost ferocious complication and virtuosity at the outer limits of performer possibility. Earlier he used electronic extensions, chance and performer collaboration in complex ways. His early keyboard music was written for himself to play, much of it meant to "accompany" modern dance performances. Cage's piano, prepared and unprepared, was the orchestra for a whole genre of solo dance performance by some of the greatest figures of modern American dance.”
