Music For Keyboard 1935 to 1948

CD (Item 806370) Columbia (Japan), 1969 — Condition: Used
2 CDs
Out Of Stock



Prepared piano, standard piano, and even toy piano – all played beautifully by Jeanne Kirstein in a double-length collection of classics by John Cage! The set's one of the best illustrations of the power of Cage's work in the early days – and many of these numbers have more force than silence, particularly the prepared piano compositions – which ring out with an other-worldly sound that still holds up beautifully all these many years later. Titles include "Two Pieces 1935", "Metamorphosis" (1938), "Bacchanale" (1938), "The Perilous Night" (1943-44), "Tossed As It Is Untroubled" (1943), "A Valentine Out Of Season" (1944), "Root Of An Unfocus" (1944), Two Pieces 1946", "Prelude For Meditation" (1944), "Music For Marcel Duchamp" (1947), "Suite For Toy Piano" (1948), and "Dream" (1948).  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
