Patterns in Chromatic Field Morton Feldman
Sunday, May 13, 2018 at 3 pm

Patterns in a Chromatic Field is a late work by Feldman (1926-1987), a composer associated with the New York School of John Cage and Christian Wolff. This 80-minute odyssey offers an opportunity for contemplation, as cello and piano explore different degrees of stasis and patterns of harmony and color. Patterns in a Chromatic Field reflects his lifelong fascination with the Abstract Expressionist painters. “My compositions are not really ‘compositions’ at all,” Feldman said. “One might call them time canvasses in which I more or less prime the canvass with an overall hue of music.”
