John Cage: Early Piano Music comes from Herbert Henck, an experienced hand with the work of Cage, having previously recorded Music for Piano, Music of Changes, and Sonatas and Interludes in addition to a mighty swath of first-tier twentieth-century literature for piano for various labels, most notably Wergo and ECM New Series. These are early works for standard, not prepared, piano, and some of these pieces will be as familiar to dyed-in-the-wool Cageans as "Happy Birthday." This puts the pressure on Henck to excel, and he does so spectacularly well here. The disc includes the two sets entitled Two Pieces for Piano, the piano version of The Seasons, Metamorphosis, In a Landscape, Ophelia, and the fragmentary Quest. The pieces date from 1935 to 1948, the same range covered by pianist Jeanne Kirstein in her pioneering 1967 survey of Cage's piano music for CBS Masterworks.

Federico Mompou (1893-1987) lived a long life filled with a quiet love for music. Although much has been said of his three decades spent in Paris, during which time he crossed paths with the likes of Debussy and Satie, it was in solitude that his crowning relic would be fashioned, already in a state of alluring dilapidation, and ultimately far from any of the geographic reference points that dotted his travels. Música Callada came into existence between 1959 and 1967, and represents one of the Catalan composer’s last major works.

Genre: Classical

Alexander Mosolov (1900-1973), too, uses his own distinctive scheme of tonal organisation, different from Roslavets, and different from the Vienna School as well. His sonatas are technically very complex and difficult, and symphonically oriented, exploiting the full resources of the modern instrument. Herbert Henck puts this difficult material across in a beautiful, spirited performance and finds a lot of lyricism behind an often forbidding surface. The recording and production are up to the highest possible standards, as with all of ECM's releases, which are unsurpassed.

Liner Notes
Viewed collectively, Herbert Henck's recordings for ECM add up to a portrait gallery of some of the most fiercely independent spirits in 20th century music. In this series of recordings, Henck has illuminated composers whose work is outside all the "schools". After Mompou, Mosolov, Barraqué, and Hans Otte, the resourceful German pianist now turns his attention to two maverick Americans - George Antheil and Conlon Nancarrow.

Karlheinz Stockhausen: Klavierstucke I-XI (Herbert Henck, piano)  Music

Karlheinz Stockhausen: Klavierstucke I-XI (Herbert Henck, piano)

Karlheinz Stockhausen - Klavierstucke I-XI (Herbert Henck, piano) (1987)
Classical | EAC (APE, CUE & LOG) | 216 MB

It's been said by Stockhausen that Klavierstücke were his "drawings". In the short span of ten years between the ages of 24 and 33, Stockhausen was stimulated by such eclectic subject matters as “electronic music”, “pointillistic music”, “spatial music”, “group form”, “chance”, “silence”, “noise”, “notation”, “statistical composition”, “musical processes”. These were Stockhausen’s pioneer years, wherein many of these elements were meticulously applied to his music which brought him world-wide recognition. The first cycle of the Klavierstücke, numbers I-IV, are ascetic miniatures written in Paris in 1952-3 when Stockhausen was studying with Messiaen. During this time he was evolving from “point” music to “groups” – or gruppen. “VI” exploits factors largely outside the control of composer or musician, its overall structure governed by the natural periods of sound decay and reverberation. “XI” displays Stockhausen’s first thorough-going application of aleatory principles, the score comprising irregularly distributed groups of notes which the pianist plays randomly within certain parameters: the pianist decides what order to play the groups in, but the score contains instructions in each group which affect the way that the next, whatever it might be, is realized.

Music of Changes represented a shift in American composer John Cage’s philosophy of musical composition. In this work, he allowed chance to direct key decisions. Cage prepared charts for such musical elements as tempo, dynamics, rests, and duration of sound, and he tossed coins onto the charts to determine how they would combine. Once determined, the piece was fixed and adhered to in performance.

This Wergo recording was awarded the German Record Critics' Award of the Year in 1983, the "Deutscher Schallplattenpreis" (German Record Award), as well as the Record Cover Award (IMZ) and the "Diapason d'Or".

Composer John Cage (1912-1992) is one of the classical world’s best known experimental composers and theorists. Electronic Music for Piano is one of Cage’s least known pieces because the score is among his most enigmatic and consequently, there are few commercial recordings of it. Written in Stockholm in 1964 on hotel letterhead, the notes ask the performer to select parts from his Music for Piano 4-84 and use electronic equipment. Everything else is up to the artist’s discretion. Enter Tania Chen, the U.K.-based pianist who has become a revered and leading interpreter of Cage’s work. Recording in both London and Berkeley, CA, Chen joined forces with Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), David Toop (former member of The Flying Lizards, and recording artist on Brian Eno’s Obscure label) and Jon Leidecker (aka Wobbly, who has also worked with Negativland) to create a new version of this piece helmed by Gino Robair composer, musician, and scholar.

In October 1962, John Cage and David Tudor went to Japan to present a series of historic concerts. Sensation. These are invaluable recordings, since they aren’t of a selected repertoire reconsidered in tranquility but capture the atmosphere of a time when all this was new and highly radical. And it’s a fine programme, played by the best exponents.
