Posted on On the Emancipation of Dissonance

Next week, AARON LIKNESS, the department’s resident pianist, will discuss the emancipation of dissonance in early 20th-century music to provide an introduction to the music and ideas of the New York School of composers, including the work of John Cage, Morton Feldman, Earle Brown, and Christian Wolff. Aaron’s discussion will also develop the relation between these developments in music and what happened in the visual arts in New York City in the same period. The presentation will prepare us for Aaron’s evening concert of a selection of these composers’ work.
