About the album

Feldman’s last work, Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello displays the qualities of the “late style”: complete mastery, utter assurance, and a kind of luminous melancholy. Like Palais de Mari, written a year earlier, it unfolds at a leisurely pace, with similar uses of repetition and recurrence, gentle rocking figures, and a somewhat restricted range. The measured unfolding of the material, without emphasis on dra- matic contrast or large fluctuations in the rate of change, enables the listener to focus on the work’s many subtle and beguiling details.

Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello zeigt Feldmans „Spätstil“: völlige Beherrschung seiner Kunst, absolute Sicherheit, und eine Art leuchtender Melancholie. Wie Palais de Mari, entstanden ein Jahr später, entwickelt es ein gemächliches Tempo, mit ähnlichem Gebrauch von Wiederholung, sanft wiegenden Figuren und einem begrenzten Ambitus. Die bedächtige Entfaltung des Materials, ohne Betonung des dramatischen Kontrastes oder schnellen Wechseln, erlaubt dem Hörer, sich ganz auf die subtileren, faszinierenden Details zu konzentrieren.
L’ultima opera di Feldman, Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello, possiede le caratteristiche del ‘tardo stile’: completa maestria, assoluta sicurezza, e una sorta di luminosa malinconia. Come Palais de Mari, scritto l’anno prima, Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello procede ad un ritmo tranquillo, con un uso simile della ripetizione e della ripresa, figurazioni ondeggianti e un’estensione in qualche modo limitata. Lo svolgimento misurato del materiale, senza enfasi sul contrasto drammatico o ampie variazioni nel ritmo del cambiamento, consentono all’ascoltatore di focalizzarsi sui molti dettagli sottili e seducenti dell’opera.
