Morton Feldman Returns to Eighth Street
New York Studio School celebrates the groundbreaking and hugely influential composer Morton Feldman, who was Dean of NYSS from 1969 to 1971. Acclaimed violinist Miranda Cuckson and pianist Conor Hanick will perform a concert of works by Feldman, whose musical creativity was intertwined to a remarkable degree with the visual arts and his personal relationships with contemporary artists. His quiet, intimate, and radiant compositions engage radically with our sensory experiences of time, sound, and space.
