Pianist Pi-Hsien Chen performs both the playful and quirky sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti juxtaposed to John Cage's I Ching developed compositions, "Music of Changes", which complement each other in unexpected and sublime ways.

Cage, John & Domencio Scarlatti

Cage, John & Domencio Scarlatti: Changes (Hat [now] ART)
Label: Hat [now] ART    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Surprising encounter between two revolutionary flouters of rules and lateral thinkers. John Cage's, Music of Changes is framed by quicksilver-capricious sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti, composed some 200 years earlier. Spontaneity and boldness, delight in experiment and the play of coincidence."-Harry Vogt, from the liner notes
