Morton Feldman: Competition on the Record Market

img  Tobias
Ives Ensemble founder and Pianist John Snijders, meanwhile, will be walking on solo paths for  “Morton Feldman: Triadic Memories & Piano”. In stark contrast to the “String Quartet”, this essential Piano piece has been performed and recorded again and again since Morton Feldman finished it in 1981. Previous interpretations include the one by Louis Goldstein and, of course, Marilyn Nonken’s widely praised take for Mode Records. John Snijders is therefore certainly up against a bit of competition, but that only adds to the already huge charm of this release slated for the next round of HatHut publications in spring.
 

Not entirely new, but still remarkably fresh is Morton Feldman’s “For Samuel Beckett”, written in 1987, the year he died of cancer. “For Samuel Beckett is a late (1987) work, rich in detail and lush in sound (especially in relation to so many of his more «austere» pieces, early and late), but troubling, obsessed, claustrophobic in spite of its scope.”, Art Lange writes in the liner notes, “This is not dazzling, but muted, orchestration; instrumental timbres and tonal colors emerge as if by chance and quickly disappear.” You get the point .- no music to pimp your party with.


HatHut has fiurthermore announced re-releases of some of their backcatalogue, which is closely related to Morton Feldman. “Morton Feldman: For Philip Guston”, “Morton Feldman: Trio”, “Morton Feldman: Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello” and “Morton Feldman · Clarinet And String Quartet” will be made available again, due to popular demand.
