- 1. For Samuel Beckett (54:36)
For Samuel Beckett
For fifty-five minutes the great American composer Morton Feldmann weaves his tapestry of sounds, a pattern always the same and yet never the same, an iridescent, thick fabric, full of details, although these never distract the listener's attention. Feldman met Beckett only once in his life (though Beckett later sent him a postcard on which the composer discovered the text for his opera Neither). He created music of a beguiling tonality and beauty, inspired more by painting and literature than by the history of music.
