John Cage - Shock Vol.2 CD 24028
Volume 2 lifts off with a fiery example of Tudor's piano virtuosity, his mastery of dynamics well evident in a performance of Klavierst?ck X (1961) by Karlheinz Stockhausen. The titular shock of this series is delivered even more forcefully with the next piece, Cage's 26'55.988 for 2 Pianists and a String Player (1961), which was first performed the year before in Darmstadt by Tudor and Kobayashi, a combination of two of Cage's solo pieces. The performance here, from Osaka, has a slightly altered title and the composition becomes a seismic quartet with the addition of Toshi Ichiyanagi and Yoko Ono, with the four performers providing acutely-angled blasts of sound. 1. Karlheinz Stockhausen, Klavierst?ck X. Performer: David Tudor (piano). 2. John Cage - 26'55.988 for 2 Pianists & a String Player. Performer: David Tudor (piano) + Toshi Ichiyanagi (piano) + Kenji Kobayashi (violin) + Yoko Ono (voice).
