Morton Feldman - String Quartet No. II (Mode, 2002)


There’s little new I can say about Feldman’s gargantuan opus. It’s actually quite difficult to verbalize why this composition (and performance [by the Flux Quartet]) is so special. Duration—six hours—is obvious, yet essential to understand this piece. It’s trying to sit through; it purposefully plays tricks on your ears; it even can lead to strange thoughts and mid-listen delusions. But it’s also exhilarating and purifying, especially in frigid weather. This is the kind of music made for winter hibernation.

For fans of: 20 degree friday nights spent alone with alcohol
