John Cage’s Concert for Piano and Orchestra is one of the seminal works of the second half of the twentieth century, and the centerpiece of the middle period of Cage’s output. It is a culmination of Cage’s work up to that point, incorporating notation techniques he had spent the past decade developing – techniques which remain radical to this day. But despite Cage’s vitality to the musical development of the twentieth century, and the Concert’s centrality to his career, the work is still rarely performed and even more rarely examined in detail.
