von DORFbrunnen / am 08.04.2021

Program:

John Cage: “The Seasons“, Ballet in One Act; Prelude I-Winter, Prelude II-Spring, Prelude III- Summer, Prelude IV-Fall, Finale (Prelude) Dennis Russell Davies, piano Philip Glass: ‘Distant Figure’ - A Passacaglia for Solo Piano (2017) Maki Namekawa, piano

 

------------------------------------------------------

“The Seasons” (1947) reflects John Cage’s interest in (American) Indian aesthetics during the mid-to-late forties. The movements of this cyclical work are programmatically inspired by their Indian interpretation: Winter as quiescence, Spring as creation, Summer as preservation, and Fall, destruction. (Margaret Leng Tan) Choreography: Merce Cunningham, Decors: Isamu Noguchi Originally composed as “Passacaglia” for the New York choreographer Lucinda Childs, Philip Glass retrospectively expanded the title for Maki Namekawa’s newly released recording, to “‘Distant Figure’ - A Passacaglia”
