Reviews

The Guardian

At the 2006 Huddersfield contemporary music festival, pianist John Tilbury and the members of the Smith Quartet gave a remarkable series of 10 recitals that included all of Morton Feldman's works for piano and strings.

Multi-Genre Music

This second volume of ‘Music for Piano and Strings by Morton Feldman’ brings together two fairly lengthy pieces for piano & Strings. Both pieces on offer here date from Feldman’s latter work in the mid to late 80’s, and both pieces here are played with wonderful precision, feeling & angular grace by pianist John Tilbury & The Smith Quartet.

Point of Departure

One can hardly think of a musician more in tune with Morton Feldman’s expansive approach to compositional structure than John Tilbury. His seminal work with Cornelius Cardew first exposed the pianist to the music of Feldman in the late ‘50s and he was amongst the first to perform Feldman’s work in Europe. Then, of course, there is Tibury’s long association with AMM, where he joined with like-minded improvisers to create and refine radically unique approaches to collective invention.
