Three compositions by John Cage performed by the 11-piece Zeitkratzer ensemble (Friedl/Gratkowski/Hautzinger/&c.), rigorous and seductive readings of these important Avant works.

Zeitkratzer: John Cage
Old School

Zeitkratzer: John Cage: Old School (Zeitkratzer)
Label: Zeitkratzer    
Released in: Germany    

"John Cage's compositions have been part of Zeitkratzer's repertoire since the very first day. The pieces presented here justify Zeitkratzer's reputation as sound specialists. Avant-garde composer Cage is played in a conservative, precise and sensual way, apart from all philosophical ambitions, and hopefully as seductive as a Schubert quintet!

Wire magazine acclaimed: "Zeitkratzer convinced us that Cage's music can still live with all its complexities, stripped of the debris of its iconic-ironic status, if we only give ourselves time, space and ears to hear!" Recorded at 2006's Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival."
