Straits Of Magellan
Released: Jan 2002
Straits of Magellan collects Morton Feldman's short indeterminate works and shows the development of his timbrale and harmonic focus from the early 1950s through the 1960s. The Durations balance different combinations of instruments in thoughtful juxtapositions, as on "2," where cello and piano morph into one another in shape, duration and tone as if they were trying to find a common language. "Two Pieces for Six Instruments," a fully notated piece, has more anxious, dense tones.
