Cage, John: Sonatas & Interludes (1946 - 1948) (Hat [now] ART)
Label: Hat [now] ART    
Released in: Switzerland    

"How rare, and valuable, it is to be able to experience one composer's masterwork through the sensibility of another significant, stylistically distinct composer - via a performance that reveals unexpected aspects of both. that is to say, an approach to performance not as an act of self-conscious, flamboyant or dramatic interpretation, according to the concerns of technique, expression, and projection that are at the heart of an instrumentalist's presentation of a musical score to an audience, but something completely different; rather, an examination of the music's premise and complex details from a contrasting, individual, compositional curiosity."-Art Lange
