Product Description


Morton Feldman's mid-period works, though not traveling a particularly different course, do take a mild and investigative turn. Subtle and explorative, these pieces are characterized by an intended tentativeness of figure, and the small chamber ensembles here are given a short leash on expression (though, within boundaries, certain notes are actually up to the performer to render duration and attack). Rarely do the oboe, flute(s), piano, violin, etc. overlap, but the spaces between are small and not the focus of Feldman's concentration. With no discernable meter, key, or delineated timbre, and an unbalanced harmonic structure, nonetheless, these pieces are lovely and quiet, outlining the flow of time without obscuring it. --Robin Edgerton
