About the album

Enormous technical requirements make John Cage's 'Etudes Boreales' a highly virtuosic work, which requires an extreme sensitivity of feeling for the coordination of fingers, instrument, and intellect. On this CD it is presented in versions: for piano solo and later for cello solo with piano solo. As in the sister works, 'Etudes Australes' and 'Freeman Etudes', Cage based the 'Etudes Boreales' on a star chart. He used the chart of the northern sky that the Czech astronomer Antonin Bečvař made in 1962. The time length piece 26'1.1499'' – Friedrich Gauwerky chooses the first 640.3 seconds for this recording, thus giving the piece the titel 10'40.3'' – documents the composer’s retreat from an intentional determination of the sounds. And also the 'Harmonies' welcome the creative possibilities of whatever happens next.
