5.0 out of 5 stars the pinnacle feldman experience August 18, 2013
i bought this recording on a whim while browsing in a 10th st. bookstore in new york city, and it has become my single favorite feldman piece. and it is long: 4 CDs comprising almost 300 minutes of music. this is not the composition to buy if you are not already familiar with the feldman esthetic; there is nothing to explain for those who are. i find the "categorical" trio instrumentation here -- a wind instrument (flute or piccolo), a keyboard (piano or celesta) and a mallet instrument (vibraphone, chimes, etc.) -- remarkably effective for the complexity of sounds that result by instrumental substitutions within categories and the contrasts of timbre between categories ... for example, the way the breathy vibrato of the flute mimics the overtone beats of the vibraphone. the sound journey is absolutely spiritual, and there is no other way to hear this performance than on a carousel CD player or ripped as a single "album" in an ipod, so that all the sections flow together without interruption. start the music when you're home relaxing on an afternoon or lazy morning, and marvel at how the bell like music entwines like a vine with your memories, and quiets the churn of anxiety in the way a flute charms the asp. for me this music expresses more than anything else the mysteries of time, memory and inevitable change -- an amazing achievement by one of the giants of 20th century music.

by the way, listeners unfamiliar with feldman as a personality may enjoy the chapter on his music by alex ross ("The Rest Is Noise"), and in particular the collection of feldman essays ("Give My Regards to Eighth Street"), which introduce us to a man of intense musical imagination, strong opinions, admiration for sibelius -- and a killer sense of humor.

Morton Feldman

CD 1 (73: 18)
CD 2 (70: 53)
CD 3 (70: 41)
CD 4 (73: 26)

S.E.M. Ensemble
Petr Kotik, flute, alto flute, piccolo
Joseph Kubera, piano, celeste
Chris Nappi, vibraphone, marimbaphone, glockenspiel, chimes

Ensemble well-regulated. I hear a little time lag played by the three parts of the instruments they play. I like it. They play it delicately and beautifully. I love it.

I like Morton Feldman: For Philip Guston played by S.E.M. Ensemble better than the California E.A.R. Unit of Label: Bridge Morton Feldman: For Philip Guston and Breuer, Engler and Schrammel of Label: WERGO Morton Feldman: For Philip Guston.
