JOHN TILBURY PLAYS MORTON FELDMAN
OTO PIANO FUNDRAISER CONCERT
Tuesday 11 December ’12 • 8PM • £10 adv / £12 on the door
“John Tilbury would jokingly refer to our long-serving, slightly battered Dannemann baby grand as ‘that piano shaped box’ and it was in part due to his ongoing encouragement that we took delivery of an ex-rental Yamaha C3 grand piano at the beginning of September this year. We were able to get a great deal from Markson’s Pianos to make this possible. Still, a piano like that doesn’t come cheap and we will need to pay it off over the next two years. To that end, John has kindly agreed to perform a very special programme of Morton Feldman’s early piano works in honour of the new instrument and to raise funds to put towards those repayments. 100% of all ticket sales tonight go to that”.
Morton Feldman’s “Crippled Symmetry” (1983) for flute, percussion and piano/celesta.
