CAGE, J.: Works for 2 Keyboards, Vol. 1 (Pestova, Meyer)
John Cage’s remarkable magnum opus A Book of Music for two prepared pianos is brought together here with his complete works for toy piano. Intricately structured according to Cage’s ideas about Mozart, A Book ofMusic is an eloquent and virtuoso mosaic of driving and sometimes frenetic rhythms, the exotic sounds of the ‘prepared’ piano strings transporting the listener into worlds of the strangest imagining. The Suite for Toy Piano is a modest miracle of precise expression and the first ever serious concert music written for this instrument, while Music forAmplified Toy Pianos is composed using chance elements, generating a spacious field of sound filled with surprise.
