Kathleen Solose launches Sonatas and Interludes album

Originally posted September 2015

Professor Kathleen Solose (Department of Music) has released a CD of a live performance of John Cage's Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano. This landmark work of the 20th century simulates gamelan and percussion sounds by placing screws, nuts and bolts inside the piano, and is inspired by East Indian philosophy.
