Contemporary American Music

New York: Carl Fischer Concert Hall, 1957. Poster for a 1957 experimental music concert at the Carl Fischer Music Hall in New York City, featuring John Cage, William Masselos, Grete Sultan, and David Tudor performing entirely pieces written for multiple pianos.

Featured pieces included:

John Cage's "Music for 4 Pianos" and "Winter Music."

Morton Feldman's "Extensions #4 for Three Pianos" and "Piece for Four Pianos."

"Improvisation" by Christian Wolff.

A performance that pre-dates Cage's international fame, but one that brought together the core members of what became known as The New York School. Cage's relationship to David Tudor would grow until Tudor was the best known interpreter of his work by the 1960s. But just as important is Cage's relationship to Morton Feldman, and Cage's student Christian Wolff.

12 x 9.5 inches (30.5 x 24 cm), letterpress on light green stock. Unfolded, Near Fine.
