Earle Brown, a major force in contemporary music and a leading composer of the American avant-garde since the 1950s, was associated with the experimental composers John Cage, Morton Feldman, and Christian Wolff who, with Brown, came to be known as the New York School.

MTI research student and cellist Audrey Riley is investigating the performance practices of the musicians and composers of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. In February this year, together with colleague James Woodrow (guitar), a performance was given in Trinity Chapel at DMU of extracts from works by composers of the New York School, associated with the MCDC: Earle Brown, Christian Wolff and Morton Feldman. Audrey has gained funding from the Earle Brown Music Foundation to now present this full concert of these works.

James Woodrow is a member of the Gavin Bryars Ensemble, guitarist for the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and the Richard Alston Dance Company. They are joined by pianist Andrew Zolinsky, professor of piano at the Royal College of Music, and violinist Gregory Warren Wilson, violinist with the contemporary Rambert Dance Company.

Christian Wolff: Micro Exercises (2006)
Morton Feldman: Intersection IV (1953)
Christian Wolff: Moving Spaces (2002)
Morton Feldman: Durations (1961)
Earle Brown: From Folio and Four Systems (1952-1954)

Many thanks to the Earle Brown Music Foundation for their generous support of this project.
