Hypnotic, shimmeringly beautiful and endlessly fascinating, Morton Feldman’s piano music is conceived on a huge scale yet unfolds almost like a whisper, using the most simple of ideas.
Pianist Philip Thomas, a leading interpreter of Feldman’s music, gives this one-off performance alongside rare screenings of short documentary profiles of two of the US’s greatest visual artists, both featuring incidental music by Feldman.
Presented in partnership with Another Timbre Records to launch Philip Thomas’s latest recording of Feldman’s works for solo piano, and Sensoria, the UK’s Festival of Music, Film and Digital Media.
