In this year’s installment, Schumann and Co. will present works from each of Cage’s most productive decades. From the 40’s: Credo in Us for percussion and piano, and the Suite for Toy Piano; from the 50’s, Cage’s iconic ‘silence’ piece 4’33”; the 60’s is represented in Cartridge Music for one to forty performers using up to twenty record players, instruments or objects amplified by means of cartridges or contact microphones, or for two or more performers using amplified piano or amplified cymbal. The 70’s and 80’s show Cage using nature’s instruments: Inlets for three performers each using four amplified, water-filled conch shells [3 very large, 3 medium large, 3 medium size, 3 small]), a performer using a blown conch shell, and the sound of pine cones burning; and But what about the noise of crumpling paper… for three to ten percussionists each using at least two only slightly resonant instruments, also involving water, paper, etc. The 90’s demonstrates Cage in his obsessive use of number pieces: Three2 for three percussionists each using any three instruments.
