Cage's monumental piano work, Music
of Changes was delivered in May 1998. Musicologist John Holzaepfel
says in his notes that this work "heralded a new concept of musical
time, placing the performer in a new relation to the score, one in
which orientation is to the occurrence of events rather than to the
relations between them." Joseph Kubera is among the few pianists
to have assayed the obstacles posed by its innovations since David
Tudor ceased playing the piece in the late 1950s. This recording is
the first since Herbert Henck's, on Wergo, from the early 1980s --
and it pairs an extraordinary performance with digital recording quality!
