Work introduction

Morton Feldman's Piano and Orchestra from 1975 is one of a series of pieces by Feldman whose title merely describes its instrumentation. Feldman hoped thus to direct the audience’s attention to the colour of the work, rather than to the process of composition. The Süddeutsche Zeitung described the work at its première as “a balancing act on the thinnest possible line between soloist and orchestra”.
