OTHER MINDS: SPEAKING OF MUSIC AT THE EXPLORATORIUM IN 1986 – MORTON FELDMAN
Morton Feldman interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian at the Exploratorium's Speaking of Music Series in San Francisco, January 30, 1986. Charles Amirkhanian interviews Morton Feldman and asks right at the top: Is your music Hermetic? The answers take us on a whirlwind tour of this composers opinions, philosophy, criticisms, recollections and observations. There are excerpts from his Piano and String Quartet as well as his Violin Concerto. Feldman indicates that his compositions, which are usually lengthy, can be compared to the novels of Proust or drinking a fine wine: one to be sipped rather than gulped. Don’t give up listening until you find out why Fred Astaire danced so well, or why Beethoven wrote his C-sharp minor String Quartet: Feldman provides the answers!
