    Default Scelsi, Cage and Cardew

    Works by Scelsi and Cage I have not heard before. Also very much looking forward to Part 3 of Cardew's "Great Learning". Have any of our contributers heard this enormous work in its entirety?

    I, and a number of other contributors to the old BBC Radio 3 message boards, took part in the first complete performance in 1984, (you can hear an extract from that tonight, I am given to understand). I have also listened to the 4 CD set of a Polish performance given last year (bit of a disappointment, that). If anyone would like to hear a recording of the 1984 performance, a PM should do the trick. A performance of Paragraph 3 given at the ICA a year or two ago can be found on YouTube:

    Happy to be able to link to it, S_A. Quite a few who took part in the very first performance of Paragraph 3 (up the stairwell of The German Institute, Exhibition Road in the early '70s) are to be found also participating in that ICA performance, and none of them look a day older. Decades, yes, but not a day.

    That sounds like a Ronnie Scott joke, Bryn

    Oh wow! Happy days indeed. What nostalgia! I recall some very fine events at The Crypt. Not just AMM, but Pink Fairies too.
