Six works for between two and four pianists at between one and four pianos, all composed within a 10-year period by two composers at their most inquisitive stages of notational exploration.

Four infrequently performed works by Morton Feldman (external link), reflecting this most intuitive composer at possibly his most cerebral and abstruse, are performed alongside the very first two works in which Christian Wolff explored what was to become a unique, cryptic approach to music notation.

With Catherine Laws, Philip Thomas, John Tilbury and Mark Knoop.
