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

The Canadian Composers Concert at Cafe Oto on 13th August was great. Apartment House played pieces by Cassandra Miller, Alex Jang, Linda Catlin Smith and Lance Austin Olsen, and they played them brilliantly. The programme featured world premieres of works by Linda and Lance, and several European premieres.

Thanks to all the musicians involved, and to everyone who came - there was a large and enthusiastic audience.
