Composed two years before his death, Feldman's "Piano and String Quartet" is a wonderfully impressionistic piece that moves slowly, rendered beautifully by Vicki Ray and the Eclipse Quartet.

Piano And String Quartet

Feldman, Morton: Piano And String Quartet (Bridge Records)
Label: Bridge Records    
Released in: USA    

"Composed two years before his death, the ultra-impressionistic Piano and String Quartet is one of the most beguiling of Feldman's late works. With its chords based on semitones, this nearly 80-minute, single movement work floats in a typical Feldmanesque haze, yet progresses with a forward moving determination and logic that sets it apart from some of Feldman's more static pieces of this period. This gorgeous performance by Vicki Ray and the Eclipse Quartet has an almost erotically sensual quality. Turn down the lights, get comfortable and prepare to be enveloped in an aural experience of exceptional warmth and depth."-Bridge Records
