 Music of Changes

 John Cage's monumental piano work, Music of Changes was delivered in May 1998. Musicologist John Holzaepfel says in his notes that this work "heralded a new concept of musical time, placing the performer in a new relation to the score, one in which orientation is to the occurrence of events rather than to the relations between them." Joseph Kubera is among the few pianists to have assayed the obstacles posed by its innovations since David Tudor ceased playing the piece in the late 1950s. This recording is the first since Herbert Henck's, on Wergo, from the early 1980s -- and it pairs an extraordinary performance with digital recording quality!
