Morton Feldman takes his unique art of limitation to the extreme in his last completed composition "Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello". Ensemble Avantgarde invites you to immerse yourself in a meditative sound world. This is a masterful performance with great serenity and a sense of infinite time: truly music about and for eternity. Seemingly immobile, Feldman’s tonal landscape evolves slowly, yet astonishingly new sounds always emerge to hold the listener in thrall. The measured unfolding of the material perfectly balances stasis and development. Without emphasis on dramatic contrast or large fluctuations in the rate of change, the listener is able to focus on the work’s many subtle and beguiling details. The chords begin to change and come to life with only the slightest timbral changes. Organic patterns, recurring motifs, irregularities in structure, minimal use of color with nuances in shading… these artistic ideas from Anatolian rug-making fascinated Feldman. He develops the compositional material in a kind of slow dance of gradual familiarity and reminiscence.
