People who have saved this event:


The piano + violin duo of Joseph Houston and Aisha Orazbayeva give a rare performance of Morton Feldman’s 1982 composition, “For John Cage.” The 75 minute performance will run without pause.


The piece unfolds with slow, fragile gestures, often repeated with minute rhythmic variations, and always operating on the edges of audibility.

Aisha Orazbayeva and Joseph Houston came together in 2015 to play music by Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff and John Cage in a series of concerts across the UK, Europe and the US. They have since commissioned a new work by Wolff, with whom they worked at the Orpheus Institute in Ghent, Belgium.

Aisha Orazbayeva is a Kazakh-born, London-based violinist with an interest in filmmaking. Recent releases include Seeping Through EP with Tim Etchells on PRAH Recordings and Scelsi’s Duo EP for violin and cello. Orazbayeva regularly performs with ensembles Plus-Minus and Apartment House.
