Many congratulations to our friend, poet Zaffar Kunial, who has been shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize 2019. He wrote Sunlight (not in the book) specially for our multimedia concert performance earlier this year, inspired by Arvo Pärt’s piano piece Für Alina and South Korean poet Ko Un.

Happy Birthday John Cage! His pioneering collaborative spirit had a lasting influence on musicians, artists and poets of his time and generations to come. Winter Music, 1957 (for 1 to 20 pianos) was dedicated to Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, who were his close collaborators, as was Merce Cunningham. @johncagetrust @rauschenbergfoundation #JohnCage #RobertRauschenberg #JasperJohns #MerceCunningham #pianist #composer #poet #artist #musician #collaboration #performance #staytuned #newwork #musicartlondon

Very pleased to see the wonderful book art installation by artist Pauline Rafal - originally created for MusicArt London - now exhibited at POSK gallery. The installation was inspired by the music and poetry of composer Robert Schumann (1810-1856) and letters with his fiancée and concert pianist Clara Wieck (later Clara Schumann). It was first presented at our Conceptual Concert by pianist Annie Yim in 2015. #bookartist #PaulineRafal #Schumann #Kinderszenen #piano #poetry #letters #composer #pianist #annieyim #bookart #installation #collaboration #music #gallery #musicartlondon

A phenomenal production of The Bassarids by Hans Werner Henze (1926-2012) premiered in 1966 at the Salzburg Festival. Henze said at the time, “I believe that the road from Wagner’s Tristan to Mahler and Schoenberg is far from finished, and with The Bassarids I have tried to go further along it. I am not prepared to relinquish what the centuries have passed on to us.” Libretto by W.H. Auden and Chester Kallmamn after The Bacchae (406 BC) by Euripides. Conducted by #KentNagano with the Wiener Philharmoniker. Directed by
#KrzystofWarlikowski. .

John Cage’s Lecture On Nothing included in his book Silence (1961). The Lecture was first given in 1949 at the Artists’ Club in NYC (started by Robert Motherwell):

“Half intellectually
and half sentimentally ,
when the war came along,
I decided to use
only
quiet sounds.
There seemed to me
to be no truth,
no good,
in anything big in society.”
