Cage, John - Etudes Australes - Liebner, Sabine

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
The composition of the “Etudes Australes” in 1974 marks the beginning of a collection of virtuoso studies which represent Cage’s renewed interest in traditional instrumentation and notation.

This complex composition consists of a total of 32 etudes divided into four books which John Cage based on maps of the southern night sky (“Atlas Australis”). From these maps, locations of planets were selected via chance operations and translated into pitches. These heavenly bodies translated into pitches were notated on two systems, each of which encompasses the entire range of the keyboard for the right and left hands. Thus in this work, the aspect of chance also becomes an aesthetic category.

The “Etudes Australes” have been recorded in a brilliant interpretation by the pianist Sabine Liebner: “The unexpected happens, because there is nothing to expect in these etudes. There is no logical sequence of events – everything is a representation of the stars. What happens here is what Cage always wanted: that the contradiction between art and life be dissolved. Art and life should not hinder each other, but form a unity, and this succeeds perfectly in the ‘Etudes Australes’, because what happens is always unanticipated.” (Sabine Liebner)

For Cage’s composition, however, the moment of performance is its only moment of reality. Only what is in the present can be heard: in this case, a constantly changing kaleidoscope of sound with no expectation of repetition.
