Morton Feldman - Two Pianos and other Pieces - John Tilbury, Philip Thomas - Another Timbre

The two discs of music included in this release bring together works that differently explore Morton Feldman's twin preoccupations: the very behavior of sound itself and the perception of time. Deploying performance instructions within the scores (as much about listening as playing) he pushes the players into a phenomenological relationship with the performance space and their instruments. At their most sublime these works hover in limpid suspension seemingly defying time. They exist outside the narrative impulse, beyond form and story. The recordings themselves are perfect in their location of sound. The microscopic intimacy often deployed today is eschewed for a beautifully articulated middle ground which serves the pieces beautifully. The playing interprets Feldman's still radical aims with infinite sensitivity.
