Item ID: 405101

As a body of repertoire, these works are notable for
their freshness of musical thought and energy (John Cage considered Wolff to be the most 'musical' of the
experimental composers). Wolff uniquely blends experimental sounds with classical tendencies. In these pieces not only older composers are referenced (Ives, Schumann), but Wolff's love of clarity of line and transparency of texture betrays an empathy with Webern, Haydn and Bach. This aesthetic is, however, combined with a tendency toward discontinuity and fragmentation, isolated sounds and silence, and, perhaps most significantly, indeterminacy of notation. Notational techniques which appear in some or all of the works featured here
include: 'tablature' notations which prescribe which fingers to play but not which notes; notes without specified duration; notes which may be played in any clef and octave; the omission of any indications as to tempo, dynamics and articulation; and Wolff's characteristic 'wedge', which means a pause or breath of any length. Performed by Philip Thomas.
