Pestova/Meyer Piano Duo


Cage, John

Music for Two
Three Dances (two pianos) (1944/45)


Pestova/Meyer Piano Duo


John Cage’s practicality transformed the piano into a full percussion orchestra and a workbench for sonic experiment. Three Dances is one of his most ambitious works for prepared piano, often involving spectacular virtuosity and exciting wildness of texture and colour reminiscent of Balinese gamelan.

Striking a balance, Music for Two includes bowed piano techniques to create shifting tapestries of subtle expression, making for some of the most exquisite and moving chamber music of the late 20th century.

This is the second of a three volume series.
