Famous for writing works of epic duration, dynamic reticence and extreme nuance, American composer Morton Feldman’s music is based on subtlety, perception and intimacy. Feldman was in the vanguard of the New York art-world in the 1950s. Among his most influential associations were his friendships with composer John Cage and the abstract expressionist painters Philip Guston, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.
A tour de force for cello and piano, Patterns in a Chromatic Field is as the piece suggests – a study in oscillating chromatic patterns that through a complex rhythmic discourse render the tale of this eighty-minute sonic adventure.
