New Music Concert: Philip Thomas plays Feldman is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.
Gently shimmering and unfolding like a sustained whisper, the music of Morton Feldman is like nothing else.
Philip Thomas will play Feldman’s final masterpiece, Palais de Mari.
Allison Cameron is a major figure in Canadian music, and this will be the world premiere of a substantial new work, commissioned by Kettle’s Yard. Tirelessly dedicated to the promotion of new music, Philip will also play the violent virtuosity of Michael Finnissy, eccentric minimalism from Christopher Fox, and a taste of the great experimentalist Christian Wolff.

Morton Feldman, Extensions 3 (6′)
Michael Finnissy, Fourth Political Agenda (7′)
Christopher Fox, The Calm of Mountains (14′)
Morton Feldman, Palais de mari (23′)
