The panel discussion will focus on principles and concepts of performing Cage. The composer’s long-time associates and collaborators will convene to present analyses of the music, while attempting to clear up misguided approaches in performances often presented as “authentic.”
Panelists include composer Christian Wolff, one of Cage’s closest associates and his only student; pianist Joseph Kubera; author Richard Kostelanetz; percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky; composer Joel Chadabe; and Petr Kotik, one of the oldest living musical collaborators of Cage, who worked with him for 28 years, from 1964 to 1992.
