String Quartet No. 1 (1979) is one of Feldman’s earliest long duration pieces. The DVD allows the presentation of this 90-minute piece without interruption. The surround mix spatializes the quartet with each instrument coming from one corner of the room.
The other two quartets from the 1950s, “Structures” and “Three Pieces” feature a different sound mix which puts the listener within the quartet, while the quartet is presented in its traditional left-to-right seating formation.
New York’s FLUX Quartet have a long history of performing Feldman – they have performed his monumental 6-hour long String Quartet No.2 several times, and their acclaimed recording of it is available on Mode Records.
The new release and other Mode Feldman Edition titles will be available for purchase at the event.
