For the first time in Greece, the distinguished contemporary music ensemble dissonArt presents the iconic composition by the pioneering American composer Morton Feldman: Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello. An immersive listening experience where the audience will be free to sit or lie down in Warehouse 1 of the Old Elefsina Olive Factory, in order to be at arm’s length from the musicians and their breaths.
Piano, Violin, Violin, Viola, Cello, is the composer’s last work, written two months before his death, offers an initiatory process into the unfathomable world of his music. As in every one of his works, in his swan song, the most important high priest of modern revolutionaryism destroys in one stroke all descriptivism, leaving his object naked. Walking across the fine line between stasis and evolution in a manner as unpretentious as its title, the musical work reveals itself as a natural phenomenon: It is music from and for eternity..
