MORTON FELDMAN: String Quartet No 1 Structures Three Pieces (2 CDs and a DVD)
This is extraordinary music; like all of Feldman, defying rational analysis. It has purpose and identity and yet it just exists; thereís no obvious connection between seemingly autonomous events. Each sound appearing self-contained, on its own mission, drifting in and out of connection with other sounds without apparent purpose. And yet. These are pieces you can listen or simply coexist with; they donít intrude but they have something to say if you want to engage with them. Beautifully played by the Flux Sting Quartet, this could also serve as a good introduction to Feldmanís aesthetic; full of quality and integrity but with an inner life that defies all understanding. Great music from one of the twentieth centuryís truly great composers.
