Composers who occupied the front lines of their eras’ avant garde share this provocative program. It embraces everything from Charles Ives’ toe-tapping sonata with its hymn-tune quotations, through John Cage’s typically quirky dance score inspired by East Indian concepts of the seasons, to Morton Feldman’s compact, spare-textured piano miniatures, and John Zorn’s zany, cartoonish mash-up of blistering frenzy with snippets of kitschy dance rhythms.
