  • Feldman For John Cage

In 1982 Morton Feldman wrote For John Cage, a gradually evolving 70-minute world of sounds, rich in tone colour, the hallmark by which Feldman has come to be known. Cage and Feldman became lifelong friends after a chance meeting in the lobby outside a New York Philharmonic concert in 1950 (they had both left after being disappointed by the audience response to Webern’s Symphony, Op. 21). Cage encouraged Feldman to move away from his earlier use of serial technique and was influential throughout Feldman’s career.

Between them, Aisha Orazbayeva and Joseph Houston have played venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Aldeburgh and Latitude festivals, St John's Smith Square, and Wigmore Hall and are established duo partners.

Please note that there is no interval in this concert and latecomers will not be admitted. Due to the nature of the piece being performed we ask that those attending the concert stay for the duration of the performance.

Venue: Elgar Concert Hall NOT Barber Concert Hall as previously advertised

Admission: Free
