Takahashi, Yuji – “Plays John Cage: Sonatas and Interludes Vol. 1 ” – [Fylkingen Records]

Yuji Takahashi Plays John Cage: Sonatas and Interludes Vol.1 is a re-release of a 1965 recording. Cage wrote this piece in 1948 for the Armenian-American pianist, Maro Ajemian.

The music itself draws its inspiration and theory from the Indian rasa: musical moods reflecting both the dark and light of the human experience. To express these moods, Cage composed the work for ???prepared piano??? ??? a piano inserted with small objects that effect the sound.

The effect? A voluminous dream in a whisper. The tracks are short and can be strung together like pearls.
