Morton FELDMAN: Piano and String Quartet (1985), duration: ca. 80'
Richard Valitutto, piano
Given its premiere by Aki Takahashi and the Kronos quartet on Monday Evening Concerts in 1985, Morton Feldman’s Piano and String Quartet has endured as one of the most sublime works of the past 30 years. Channeling the static vibrancy and religiosity of the paintings of Mark Rothko, as well as the virtuosic feats of memory involved in the labyrinthine designs of Turkish rug weavers, Feldman’s expansive 80-minute work provides the listener with the time and space to enter another realm. Performed here by Los Angeles’ own Formalist Quartet and pianist Richard Valitutto in a private location to be announced, this special concert will help Monday Evening Concerts continue its mission of presenting listeners with innovative, challenging, rewarding, and hopefully life-altering concerts for years to come.
