A fascinating look at Feldman's early works, including - at last - the assumed lost 'Intersection' for magnetic tape, finished in 1953, and the great music for a 1951 film about Jackson Pollock, which effectively marked Feldman's entry into American musical life. This CD reproduces the optical soundtrack from the film itself - all other recordings being lost - which includes Pollock himself speaking. There are other substantial early works for 1 and 2 pianos, occasionally for piano and violin. The spare qualities are already there, of course, but there is a wider palette perhaps than we sometimes expect from Feldman. An altogether excellent collection.
