Product Description

The place Triadic Memories takes us is full of illusions, not only of function and direction but also of timelessness and stasis.

* This 94-minute, single movement work for solo piano is available in two formats: as a specially priced 2-CD set ($19.99) and complete and uninterrupted on one single audio-only DVD ($19.99) * The DVD is presented in uncompressed, high-resolution 96khz/24-bit stereo, playable on any DVD player. * Both the CD and DVD versions have numerous arbitrary track markers to ease navigation through this continuous, one-movement piece. * Recorded from the pianist's perspective, it gives the listener the unique opportunity to hear all of the small nuances and overtones which can be lost in the concert hall. * There is no indication of tempo. For this recording, Ms. Nonken chose a steady eighth-note pulse throughout that approximates the heart rate at rest. Unfolding in time at this rate, the work's geography - its rapturous peaks and long, low valleys - is brought into relief. * Of Ms. Nonken's October 2003 performance of Triadic Memories, John Rockwell wrote in The New York Times: " Ms. Nonken played it with a relaxed, almost rubber-wristed calm, caressing the keys without losing rhythmic definition. A lovely performance of a lovely piece".

From the Artist

Marilyn Nonken, named "Best of the Year" five times by the Boston Globe, has been described by the New York Times as "a pianist from music's leading edge" and a "determined protector of important music." Her repertoire, featuring composers associated with the Second Viennese School, American experimentalism and ultramodernism, Darmstadt, the New York School, Spectralism, and the New Complexity, includes historic works of Ives, BarraquŽ, Stockhausen, and Ligeti as well as the complete solo piano music of Schoenberg, Boulez, and Tristan Murail. Composers who have written for her include Murail, Milton Babbitt, Mario Davidovsky, Chris Dench, Michael Finnissy, and young Americans such as Jason Eckardt, Paul Nauert, Jeff Nichols, and David Rakowski; she has worked closely with James Dillon, Jonathan Harvey, Alvin Lucier, Salvatore Martirano, and Charles Wuorinen, among others. She has been presented as a soloist throughout the United States, Canada, Italy, the Czech Republic, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Also an acclaimed chamber musician, Ms. Nonken plays in New York with Ensemble 21 (of which she is a cofounder and Artistic Director) and has appeared as a guest artist with the Group for Contemporary Music, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and Elision. For two consecutive seasons, she was featured on Carnegie Hall's "When Morty Met John," a series devoted to the music of Feldman and Cage curated by Joan La Barbara. Ms. Nonken has recorded for New World Records, Albany, Lovely Music, CRI, and Metier Sound and Vision; American Spiritual, a CD of works written for her, was a CRI release. A student of David Burge at the Eastman School, she received a Ph.D. degree in musicology from Columbia University. Her writings have been published in many international journals, and she is the guest editor of "Performers on Performance," an issue of Contemporary Music Review. Ms. Nonken is a Steinway artist.
