BBC SSO: Cage at 100
Another "this concert will be recorded for future broadcast" on Hear and Now event. No word of when it's scheduled to be broadcast.
- Concerto for Prepared Piano
- Atlas Eclipticalis with Winter Music
- But what about the noise...
- Ear for Ear
- Improvisation III
- Child of Tree
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ilan Volkov, with John Tilbury (piano) and guest improvisers
Glasgow City Halls, Saturday 28th July at 7.30pm.
Anyone got any thoughts on any of these works?
Well I am glad this 'rehearsal' for the Prom on August 17th is also eventually to be broadcast. Tilbury and Volkov did the Concerto for Prepared Piano and orchestra with the latter's Iceland orchestra earlier this year, and a particularly fine performance it was. The "guest improvisers" include many of the leading luminaries of that field. I really wish I could have made it to Glasgow for this event, but it was not to be.

by the way did anyone go to the Cage performance at the Proms in the end?
I went, and enjoyed, I'm interested what other's feedback would be.
