Morton Feldman's Triadic Memories
Presented by Luke Berryman
Morton Feldman's "Triadic Memories" (1981) consists of a single, unbroken movement lasting nearly two hours. It is remarkably delicate, in spite of its vast scale. From the start it is characterized by hushed dynamics, slow-shifting colors, and powerful use of silence. Feldman once aptly described it as the "biggest butterfly in captivity."
Luke holds undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in music from the University of Oxford, Boston University, and King's College London respectively. His PhD thesis was on the use of Richard Wagner's operas in Nazi propaganda. He studied piano in London with Niel Immelman, a professor of keyboard at the Royal College of Music. His solo repertoire embraces composers from Scarlatti to Stockhausen; and his concerto repertoire includes works by Mozart, Gershwin, Grieg, Rachmaninoff, Saint-Saëns, Schumann, and Tchaikovsky. Today he lives and works in New York.
Please note this concert will have no interval.
