This morning's program was dedicated to the music of Bela Bartok, who died in September 1945, in New York City, almost 67 years ago exactly. We started by exploring his Concerto for Orchestra, in its original form and in Bartok's almost unknown arrangement for piano, discovered by his son Peter Bartok in 1987. We then moved on to another very late work, the Third Piano Concerto, before exploring earlier, shorter works for piano solo. The featured pianists today were Gyorgy Sandor and Lili Kraus, both students of Bartok.
Cage's early Wesleyan Years. We dip slightly into the unending inventory of moments during the years of this collaboration...the pieces Cage wrote during that time, a few of the characters involved in that network.
Readings from Cage's 'Silence' and Norman O Brown's 'Life Against Death', and 'Love's Body'.
