Morton Feldman: For Philip Guston

Oerknal!

I never feel that my music is sparse or minimalist; the way fat people never really think they’re fat. I certainly don’t consider myself minimalist at all.’ (Morton Feldman)

A day devoted to the music of Morton Feldman is a day spent wandering around in a different age. Soft tones and harmonies that seem to resist movement evoke a world where time has all but stood still. One’s attention can focus, unhurried, on the details of the music and the silences between the sounds. This is certainly true of his Projections from the early fifties and of the hours-long For Philip Guston from 1984.

In Projections, Feldman experimented with a form of notation in which he indicated which instruments should sound and how long their notes should be held. This work will be performed in the afternoon by students of the Royal Conservatory led by Gregory Charette, leader of the young ensemble Oerknal! In the evening, three members of Oerknal! will perform For Philip Guston, one of Feldman’s later works, dedicated to friends who were New York painters from the circles of abstract expressionism. A compelling work; at once vulnerable, abstract, and sensual.
