Feldmans free furation
« on: May 27, 2008, 07:43:10 AM »
Duration is free, and not even even, just totally free. The note heads are written only.

A pianist, I know, who are specialized in that kind of repertoire, claimed that it was a shame, that most pianists would play a free duration Feldman piece with equal note lenght, when they could just as well play molto rubato.

Then my question arrised: When duration is free, why not change the written notes also? Since Hertz is a duration as well.

Feldman thread

yeah but is there anything wrong in having several topics about Feldman? This is about a very particular philosofic question, that could be found in  many other relations.

The difference is that he tells you that the durations of the notes are to be chosen by the player (so long as they are slow!). Hertz isn't a duration - it is measured in inverse seconds. While the speed between beats is a duration (the period of the wave), Hertz is a measure of the number of beats in a second which is not a duration.

It just makes for easier searching/referencing when all the info regarding a particular composer is collected onto as few threads as possible.

As opposed to dozens of composer 'mini-threads' spread all over the board, which can make searching much more difficult.


Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach

Depends on what you mean by "wrong."

However, there is little enough interest in Feldman on this board, generally, that having multiple threads is like no conversation at all, but this individual inhabiting one thread, that individual inhabiting another.
