Music of John Cage

April 22, 2016 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

SBDAC Music of John Cage

Friend, collaborator, and influence of Rauschenberg, John Cage is one of the most notable avant-garde composers of the 20th Century. According to Cage, music is “an affirmation of life – not an attempt to bring order out of chaos nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply a way of waking up to the very life we’re living.” From 4’33” to prepared pianos and more, this concert explores the breadth of his oeuvre.


Musician Adam Tendler will be playing a prepared piano during Friday’s show. Adam Tendler has been called “an exuberantly expressive pianist” who “vividly displayed his enthusiasm for every phrase” by The Los Angeles Times, and an “intrepid…outstanding…maverick pianist” by The New Yorker.

Tendler’s memorized performances of John Cage’s complete Sonatas and Interludes include a sold-out concert at The Rubin Museum in New York City and a featured solo recital in the “Cage100” festival at Symphony Space, listed by New York Magazine as one of the Top 10 Classical Music Events of 2012.
