“the eight works for pairs of instrumentalists here show how, in the right hands, the varying degrees of freedom his works allow their interpreters can produce astonishingly beautiful results.” The Guardian, 4th April 2013 ***

Christian Wolff: Incidental Music and Keyboard Miscellany

Christian Wolff: Incidental Music and Keyboard Miscellany


Wolff, C:

Incidental Music

Keyboard Miscellany


Christian Wolff (piano)

Definitive performances of the composer playing his own keyboard works.

'Incidental Music' and 'Keyboard Miscellany', are sets of piano music (Wolff also performs some on the melodica). Though both consisting mostly of quite short musical items, have as a whole different origins and different shapes.

'Keyboard Miscellany' is an ongoing collection which began with the 'Variation on Morton Feldman’s Piano Piece 1952' in 1988. In 1991 Wolff started making pieces for individual people and occasions, usually birthdays, just short communications.

'Incidental Music' came about when Wolff was asked to play for a Merce Cunningham Dance Company 'Event' in 2004. Cunningham’s dance 'Events' were ad hoc arrangements, different each time. The accompanying music (which, as usual with Cunningham dances had no direct relation to the dance, simply co-existing) could be any music the musicians chose. This work became a series of 100 small, quick drawings which could be used as a basis for improvisation. Liner notes by Christian Wolff.

Sabine Liedner (piano)

Christian Wolff was born in Nice in 1934. His family emigrated to the USA in the 40’s and Wolff began his musical studies in 1950 under Grete Sultan. His circle of creative friends included artists and musicians, among them John Cage, Morton Feldman, David Tudor, choreographer Merce Cunningham and painters Mark Rothko and Philip Guston. His music reflects the excitement and modernism of this period.

“The Tilbury pieces are cult contemporary classics that disperse beautifully heard scraps of material around a spacious canvas. The Miscellany is an evolving sketchpad documenting Wolff's myriad techniques and obsessions. Libner brings deadpan detachment and a resonant, tactile tone to this inscrutably, always fascinating, whimsical music.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2009

The New Sound Composers-Performers Group, Alcides Lanza

'Earle Brown: A Life in Music Vol. 6' is the eagerly-awaited final installment in a unique series: the 18 LPs of Earle Brown's legendary Contemporary Sound Series, recorded between 1960 and 1973, have become a rarity in great demand since the series was discontinued in 1978. These rare and historically important recordings have been carefully digitised and remastered by the Earle Brown Music Foundation. The complete series is now available in six 3-CD boxes by WERGO.

CD 1 contains works by John Cage and Christian Wolff from the early 1960s: In Cage's “Cartridge Music”, sounds are generated by inserting different objects in the pick-up head of the gramophone. Due to their composition structure, Wolff's works “Duo for Violinist and Pianist”, “Summer” and “Duet II” have in common that no interpretation is identical with the next one.

CD 2 presents the outstanding violinist Paul Zukofsky, brilliantly accompanied by the pianist Gilbert Kalish, performing works by George Crumb, Isang Yun, Charles Wuorinen and John Cage which make extremely high demands on the performer.

CD 3 contains works by the South American composers Gerardo Gandini, César Bolaños, Marlos Nobre, Oscar Bazán, Manuel Enríquez and Alcides Lanza, performed by the New Sound Composers-Performers Group under the direction of Alcides Lanza.
