John Cage was one of America's most important avant-garde / classical / conceptual composers of the 20th century. The influence of his works such as sonatas and interludes for prepared piano in both jazz and underground popular music (stereolab, broadcast and the like). This vintage recording dates from the early fifties when nothing like it had ever been heard before and is the perfect introduction to Cage. Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano is John Cage's magnum opus. This is the first recording of this work, played by the Armenian pianist Maro Ajemian over 50 years ago, when the music was new and shocking. It still is. Cage was very much an International artist in every sense of the word, meaning this album has great export potential from Classical, Jazz and Indie specialist outlets worldwide.
