John Cage: Etudes Boreales

John Cage: Etudes Boreales
John Cage: Etudes Boreales
Enormous technical requirements make John Cage's "Etudes Boreales" a highly virtuosic work, which requires an extreme sensitivity of feeling for the coordination of fingers, instrument, and intellect. On this CD it is presented in versions: for piano solo and later for cello solo with piano solo. As in the sister works, "Etudes Australes" and "Freeman Etudes", Cage based the "Etudes Boreales" on a star chart. He used the chart of the northern sky that the Czech astronomer Antonín Be?vá? made in 1962. The time length piece 26'1.1499'' – Friedrich Gauwerky chooses the first 640.3 seconds for this recording, thus giving the piece the titel 10'40.3'' – documents the composer’s retreat from an intentional determination of the sounds. And also the "Harmonies" welcome the creative possibilities of whatever happens next.

Abstract

Enormous technical requirements make John Cage's "Etudes Boreales" a highly virtuosic work, which requires an extreme sensitivity of feeling for the coordination of fingers, instrument, and intellect. On this CD it is presented in versions: for piano solo and later for cello solo with piano solo. As in the sister works, "Etudes Australes" and "Freeman Etudes", Cage based the "Etudes Boreales" on a star chart. He used the chart of the northern sky that the Czech astronomer Antonín Be?vá? made in 1962. The time length piece 26'1.1499'' – Friedrich Gauwerky chooses the first 640.3 seconds for this recording, thus giving the piece the titel 10'40.3'' – documents the composer’s retreat from an intentional determination of the sounds. And also the "Harmonies" welcome the creative possibilities of whatever happens next.
