Sonatas & Interludes
Joshua Pierce: piano
These Cagean masterpieces have in common a grandness of conception - they take a single idea and explore it exhastively, at length.
Cage is among the few figures in modern art of whom it could be said that the world would have been different had he not come - not just the music world or the art world, but the world we experience every day. (Richard Konstelanetz)
"These works of Cage as performed by Joshua Pierce are fascinating to consider; fascinating to listen to." (The New York TImes)
"Outstanding exponent of the Cagean prepared piano ... This recording is excellent!" (The Musical Quarterly)
