Canadian Composer Series #2 August 2018

Feldman revealed….

Earlier this year, to mark the start of a recording project of Feldman’s piano music, we set up an  Anonymous Zone challenge.

You can listen to six pianists playing the same extract from ‘For Bunita Marcus’ and see which version you prefer.

We have revealed which version is played by which pianist. To find out, go here

“Wondrous to experience….yet another fine entrant in this series.”  

“Strange but profoundly haunting…totally beguiling.”
