This recording is pretty amazing:
How do you listen to these gigantic late Feldman pieces Lester? In one sitting or broken up into segments?I've got these works too but almost never seem to revisit them because of the daunting challenge of how to approach them.With the ones that fit on to one (or even two) discs it's doable. My favorite, I think, is For John Cage.
Further thoughts on the new Kalitzke disc from Kairos per Lester's request:I just gave another listen to the cello concerto "Story Teller" and it impressed me mightily. Kalitzke is a boldly original composer; so much so that, as usual with me, the second run through of the piece revealed to me that I really wasn't getting it the first time around. There's a wonderful absence of any obvious formal structure to what he's doing kind of like the best free-improv. The music very much seems to play by its own rules, it's surprises and unpredictability greatly rewarding attentive listening.
I too like the Cage very much,
