Editorial Reviews

The music on this recording illustrates the essential integrity of the work of Morton Feldman and one of its fundamental strengths--its continuously unfolding unanimity of purpose. There are few composers of his generation whose first and last published work (in Feldman's case Journey to the End of Night of 1949 and Piano and String Quartet of 1986) span youth and final years with such a concentrated viewpoint. There are, however, landmarks in the music of Feldman that are largely technical and notational. There are the graphic pieces, the first from 150 and the last from 1964, in which some parameter of composition is not specified (often pitch). Thee are the "free duration pieces," both solo and ensemble, in which there is instruction either for sections of the piece or for its entirety. False Relationships and the Extednded Ending (1968) is a late example of this kind, although Why Patterns? (1978) is a variant of the principle. Thee are also the conventionally notated works in his oeuvre, one of which is The Viola in My Life. It may be that Feldman's music will always strike a certain kind of listener as idiosyncratic--adenial of the time-honored ways in which music articulates itself. I think that Feldman was deeply offended by this response, by this notion that his music was singular because it was, as some might say, "missing something." Though it is true that his values of graduation can be exceedingly fine, when one enters this scale and comprehends it, something truly new and wonderful opens up in the art of music--a wold in which the relative and absolute become engaged with themselves. (This recording was orginally issued as CRI CD 620)
