Format: Audio CD
Margaret Leng Tan, the pianist on this album, knew and played for John Cage himself for more than a decade. The insight that comes with such a relationship with the composer shines through on this album. I can scarcely imagine better versions of these wonderful piano pieces. The pieces span a variety of types of pianos (prepared piano, toy piano, regular piano, bowed piano) and moods. From the incredibly beautiful ("In a Landscape" is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard) to the aggressive ("Ophelia") to the minimalist ("Music for Piano #2), this album spans quite a bit of the possibilities for piano music. I highly recommend it, but should caution you that you must have an open mind to enjoy this--this could be unlike you might have heard a piano played before (or imagined it could be played). If you like this, I recommend "The Perilous Night/Four Walls," which also has Margaret Leng Tan playing piano.

I have few regrets, but as I continue my journey into Cage's works I am beginning to regret that I was not old enough to be at Black Mountain when he was there..or that I didn't have the opportunity to know him as Margaret Leng Tan did years later. Now I am tempted to add to my very small list of regrets that I have not seen Margaret Leng Tan play Cage..that I don't know her. This is a lovingly, joyously compiled, beautifully interpreted selection of the many ways in which John Cage explored the possibilities of piano during a specific early time in his career ( 1940-1953). It includes the original work for prepared piano, Bacchanale, a suite for toy piano, the hauntingly beautiful "In a Landscape" and a piece, "Music For Piano #2", in which Ms. Tan, with Cage's enthusiastic endorsement, bowed certain sections with fishing line. They discussed this piece the day before he died in 1992. It is a great privilege, through this album, to eaves drop on a luminous affair of heart and mind between Tan and Cage.
