MORTON FELDMAN (1926-1987): Patterns in a Chromatic Field.
Catalogue Number: 04S060
Label: Hat Art
Format: CD reissue
Description: As forthcoming as Feldman was about his obsessive relationship with painting, primarily although not exclusively the work of the Abstract Expressionist painters of the late 1940's, 50's and 60's who were his close friends, we find that for all his talk of the congruities between artistic and musical qualities of scale, surface, or space, among others, much of his music - especially the later, longer scores of which Patterns In A Chromatic Field is a prime example - remains mysteriously idiosyncratic and marvelously cryptic. 2 CDs. Rohan de Saram (cello), Marianne Schroeder (piano). Original 1993 release.
