Anton Webern – Drei kleine Stücke, opus 11
Arnold Schoenberg – Sechs kleine Klavierstücke, opus 19
Charles Ives – A Set of Three Short Pieces
Morton Feldman – Piano and String Quartet

The final evening of “either end of the SCALE” sees another of Morton Feldman’s hauntingly beautiful long creations, the 75-minute Piano and String Quartet. Here we find Feldman at his most lyrical and restrained, pairing a magical translucency with the subtlest harmonic and rhythmical shadings found in contemporary music. Considering it his favourite piece, the composer summarized the work as “the history of the speed of a broken chord”, and claimed that it had “everything I always wanted”. The first half of the concert features exquisite pieces by composers that were of immense influence on Feldman’s thinking. The brief masterworks by Webern, Schoenberg and Ives form a perfect gateway to the expansiveness of Feldman’s musical landscape.
