A Concert of Works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman (August 31, 1968)

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 mins
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Recorded at the De Young Museum in San Francisco on August 31, 1968, this program features two works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman. The first piece heard is the world premiere of “Scream Kiss No. 1,”a theatrical work for harpsichord and pre-recorded tape by Robert Moran, and performed here by Margaret Fabrizio on the harpsichord. This work was used in a film realization by Paul Crowley, which also featured Ms. Fabrizio on screen, however it is uncertain whether the film was shown during this performance. This piece is followed by “Four Instruments” by Morton Feldman, a very quiet and meditative work of aleatoric music. The San Francisco Bay Area was a center of avant-garde contemporary classical music in the latter half of the 20th century and this recording captures some of that adventurous musical programing, and should be of interest to any student of American New Music.

Note: levels on Feldman piece are quite low and attentive listening is required.
