  7. Cecil Taylor RIP

    Pretty sure the Dixon/Oxley/CT gig was 2004; a double bill with a Braxton Quintet, whose set yielded this recording.

    I have to confess, I don't really know much about her: but yes, I think the dance background would help identify with this piece (original commission was from Ida Rubinstein I think), and also the stage experience. And it certainly does feel natural here. I can imagine her sounding great in something like Stravinsky's Persephone too (a part Rubinstein did in the original performance, I think). Seems that way! It's new to me; I picked it up after hearing a fantastic version on the radio from Symphony Hall, Birmingham, the other week. LOVE Annie Fischer's Beethoven. She pretty much owns op.109!!!

    Yes indeed! She takes the narrator's part - does it brilliantly.
