    John Cage: Sonatas and Interludes


    3637 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19104
    • Thursday March 21st 2019, 8:00pm to 10:00pm

    Bowerbird, in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania Department of Music, is pleased to present Amy Williams performing Sonatas and Interludes, John Cage’s groundbreaking cycle for prepared piano. Significantly more complex than his other works for prepared piano, Sonatas and Interludes is generally recognized as one of Cage’s most important compositions.


    The cycle consists of sixteen sonatas (thirteen of which are cast in binary form, the remaining three in ternary form) and four more freely structured interludes.Cage’s works will be interspersed with new interludes by Jay Alan Yim, Jeffrey Weeter, Robert Reinhart and Philly composers Adam Vidiksis and Kevin Laskey.
