John Cage “Solo for Voice 58: 18 Microtonal Ragas” CD


Categories: ,


The world premiere recording of Solo for Voice 58 by legendary American avant-garde composer John Cage. Italian-German dhrupad singer Amelia Cuni is the ideal interpreter, trained in classical Indian singing but also able to improvise on ragas in a new music context. Cuni developed from Cage’s score of eighteen raga scales a remarkable and unique interpretation that belongs to both the classical Indian and Western experimental traditions. Includes an extensive booklet with essays by Amelia Cuni, Indian music scholar and composer Sandeep Bhagwati, and Cage scholar William Brooks (University of York).
