Notes and Editorial Reviews

In 2000, Eberhard Blum, Nils Vigeland, and Jan Williams came together once more as “The Feldman Soloists” to perform Crippled Symmetry, the trio Feldman composed for them, on the 25th anniversary celebration of the festival he founded. The recording of this concert is now finally available on CD, and is destined to become the reference release of this work.

Required listening for all fans of Feldman’s rich, hypnotic world of enigmatic harmony and mnemonic echo. Mastered by Denis Blackham, and presented in a card package which unfolds to reveal the musicians’ “butterfly-like” arrangement on stage.

 almost lush November 15, 2012 By T. Gasloli (East Lansing, MI) See All My Reviews "This is clearly the definitive recording of Crippled Symmetry. Far better than the dry, abstract, academic performance by The California EAR Unit. Feldman was always attentive to the sounds of the instruments he used. The performers in this recording clearly understand that. Feldman is not mathematical music, it is not abstract. It is always rich and real. This recording captures that." Report Abuse
