Historical and very first performance by Jean-Luc Fafchamps
Acclaimed by the New York Times as the best version.
Published in 1990.

Triadic Memories for piano solo is an exemplary work among his compositions. Completed on July 23, 1981, and dedicated to Aki Takahashi and Roger Woodward, the piece is Feldman's longest composition for piano: it comprises more than 1100 mesures, a good third of which are graced with repeat marks. But, more to the point, this is a piece which reflects his most methodical meditation upon the disorientation of memory, as himself explains.

released November 28, 2016

Morton Feldman was born in New York on January 12, 1926. In 1949 the most significant meeting up to that time took place - Feldman met John Cage, commencing an artistic association of crucial importance to music in America in the 1950s. Cage was instrumental in encouraging Feldman to have confidence in his instincts, which resulted in totally intuitive compositions. He never worked with any systems that anyone has been able to identify, working from moment to moment, from one sound to the next. His friends during the 1950s in New York included the composers Earle Brown and Christian Wolff; painters Mark Rothko, Philip Guston, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock and Robert Rauschenberg; and pianist David Tudor. He is today considered as one of the most important composers of the century.
