2006 repress, new 24-bit hi definition remaster. First release in Mode's Feldman Edition, of shorter solo piano works, performed by Aki Takahashi, recorded 1995. "Morton Feldman's sound-world no longer needs an introduction. Feldman was especially fond of Aki's playing, so much so that he had selected certain works particularly for her. Together they toured this program, with Feldman speaking about the compositions and Aki performing them. The CD contains selections from those recitals as well as works close to Aki's heart, many receiving their first recording and available on CD for the first time. Of particular note is the premier recording of Feldman's earliest published composition -- ILLUSIONS -- which is unique in his oeuvre: it is mostly loud and fast!"
