ALECK KARIS: WEBERN, WOLPE & FELDMAN
BRIDGE 9420


$ 14.99

In 1950, Morton Feldman met John Cage after a performance of Webern’s Symphony. Feldman walked up to Cage and said, “Wasn’t that beautiful?” Their mutual admiration for Webern began a life-long friendship. Feldman had been studying with Stefan Wolpe for five years. Feldman wrote: “…at eighteen I found myself with Stefan Wolpe. But all we did was argue about music, and I felt I was learning nothing.” Later in life Feldman acknowledged Wolpe’s influence. Aleck Karis, longtime pianist for Speculum Musicae, plays a program of key works by this essential triumvirate.
