Quote from: snyprrr on June 02, 2009, 12:39:14 AMPiano and String Quartet is about the creepiest perfect heroin music ever. Basquiat. I find so much "of course" perfection into its arpeggio-chord structure. Of course you're allowed to nod off!!! CPO's 4 ctos. were the bargain of the ages when it came out (remember that disc of Boulez, Lachenmann, and Scelsi?). The flute heralds Feldman's late style, the piano is amazingly flat, and the cello is very dramatic. For me, this is the perfect Feldman length.Already I'm getting the feeling I've written this all on another thread.But for Feldman's music to sound the way it does when every picture of him contains a cigarette I find spiritually creepy, like he is channelling death.
Quote from: Guido on June 02, 2009, 12:52:16 AMFeldman's Cello and Orchestra is a wonderful score isn't it. The nightmarish mists that it conjures beneath the arching cello line is just magical - somehow the whole thing seems like a single song or cry - passionate but also numb.
QuoteMmm . . . reminds me to cue Coptic Light back up . . . .

Quote from: Daverz on June 03, 2009, 04:05:14 PMI have the Tilson Thomas and Michael Morgan recordings. The one that Fanfare says is the best is Gielen, which coupled with, of all things, the Bruckner 8th. Anyone see the connection?
Quote from: bhodges on June 08, 2009, 08:27:46 AMOn Friday, June 19, Either/Or is doing Feldman's Why Patterns? at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, along with pianist David Budin in Stockhausen's Klavierstücke IX.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on June 08, 2009, 08:30:44 AMYou going, Bruce? That is, for whatever passel of reasons, one of my consistent Feldman favorites.
Quote from: Catison on June 12, 2009, 06:35:12 AMIt is so weird, Naxos music library has the Coptic Light with Gielen, but it will simply not play. I was really excited about it too.
Quote from: Greg on January 19, 2010, 11:58:58 AMI relistened to a few that I listened to a few years ago, such as the "concertos", and the 1st String Quartet, but my favorites so far are the ones that I listened to for the first time, such as For Christian Wolff and Neither. What should I listen to next if I like these?...(or would it be impossible not to say "all of them!"?)
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on January 19, 2010, 12:02:35 PMWell, I'm really just going to list the pieces I am most enthusiastic about (in which number is included For Christian Wolff):Why Patterns?Rothko ChapelCoptic LightCrippled Symmetry
