Daniel Lombardi
Cage Age

   

fundamental aspect of Cage’s concept of music, from the form to the event, was randomness, improvisation, movable structure, impromptu choices by the performer, more or less guided by schemes that often are only indications of time segments, an extreme act of interactive decision-making between composer and performer. Variations IV, the last composition on the programme, is an example of this practice, and in this case the “happening” is guided by various instructions. The version presented in this concert uses piano, a female vocalist, a percussionist and a young improviser at the toy piano, all of whom interact with ambient sounds recorded in Florence.

Variations IV is a tribute to Cage, to remember the hours we spent together in Florence, a month before his death.
