Cage-Quartet for Percussion(S-n4) - Product Information

The Quartet is in 4 movements:
I Moderato
II Very Slow
III Axial Asymmetry Slow
IV Fast.

It may be performed with one or with both slow movements. The Quartet is a work of fixed rhythmic patterns. Cage composed the Quartet during his studies with Schönberg. This seems quite remarkable since the work is far from the spirit of the teacher, and has more in common with the works of a number of other composers.

Number of Players: 4
Difficulty: Grade 5
Instrumentation: Indeterminate

John Cage was born on September 5, 1912 in Los Angeles, California and died in New York City on August 12, 1992. He studied liberal arts at Pomona College. Among his composition teachers were Henry Cowell and Arnold Schoenberg. Cage was elected to the American National Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and received innumerable awards and honors both in the United States and in Europe.
