About the Event

Morton Feldman Returns to Eighth Street

New York Studio School celebrates the groundbreaking and hugely influential composer Morton Feldman, who was Dean of NYSS from 1969 to 1971.

New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture
8 West 8th Street New York
September 19th – 6:30pm

Acclaimed violinist Miranda Cuckson and pianist Conor Hanick will perform a concert of works by Feldman, whose musical creativity was intertwined to a remarkable degree with the visual arts and his personal relationships with contemporary artists. His quiet, intimate, and radiant compositions engage radically with our sensory experiences of time, sound, and space.

Extensions 1 (1951), for violin and piano

Projection 1 (1950), for cello (performed on violin)

Vertical Thoughts 2 (1963), for violin and piano

Piano Piece (to Philip Guston) (1963), for piano

Spring of Chosroes (1977), for violin and piano

New York Studio School is grateful to Yamaha for its generous donation of a piano for this program.

This program was conceived by NYSS as a tribute to the New York Landmarks Conservancy during their 50th Anniversary celebrations.

The School wishes to make this event as accessible as possible. Please make a donation to NYSS as you are able (suggested donation $20 per person). Capacity is limited to 75 people.
