Rothko Chapel

Morton Feldman

compact disc

1970

Commissioned for The Rothko Chapel, an non denominational place of worship and contemplation lined with Rothko paintings, this is one of Feldman's most approachable works. Appropriate to the setting it has an uncharacteristic warmth.

hearing

Feldman has never been a composer to use notes where none is needed. The beautifully austere tone and spacious clarity of this music allows for the coexistence of the paintings and in their absence it allows the listener to occupy a space made of sound which is as much a refuge as the physical chapel could ever be.
