Morton FELDMAN: Crippled Symmetry
Vicki Ray, piano
Alice Teyssier, flute
Jonathan Hepfer, percussion
"For me at least sound was the hero, and it still is. I feel that I'm subservient. I feel that I listen to my sounds, and I do what they tell me, not what I tell them. Because I owe my life to these sounds. Right? They gave me a life." ~ Morton Feldman
Monday Evening Concerts opens its 78th concert season with Morton Feldman's late-career masterwork for flute, piano and percussion soloists, Crippled Symmetry. Inspired by the intricate patterning of Anatolian rugs, Proust's transfiguring fog of memory, and the perpetually evolving mobile-form sculptures of Alexander Calder, Feldman creates a hushed sound world in which lines function simultaneously interactively and independently. Subtly unfolding over the course of ninety minutes, Crippled Symmetry is Feldman's meditative, existential response to the urgencies and anxieties of modern life.
Generous support for this concert is being provided by: LAXART, Silverlake Wine and Claremont Rug Company.
