5.0 out of 5 stars A late Feldman masterpiece. 17 July 2008
By Tom Furgas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"For Bunita Marcus" is one of Feldman's late masterworks, in this case a long (over 70 minutes) work for solo piano (his last solo piano composition, I believe.) This has all the hallmarks of Feldman's late style; slowly evolving, often repeating patterns which weave together in a quiet and otherworldly beauty that is Feldman's own. Always remember that when Stockhausen asked Feldman "What's your secret?" Feldman replied "I don't push the sounds around." Simple as that, yet how brilliant and unexpected an approach to music-making.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bunita Marcus should sue 13 Aug 2011
By Delton T. Horn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Don't make the same mistake I did. I like a lot of avant garde pieces, including some slow moving, slowly evolving minimalist pieces. I have heard a couple of Morton Feldman's works and enjoyed them. Listening to the sample was unimpressive, but these type of pieces rarely have stand-out samples. They need time to make their point. So I figured, at 89 cents for the download with 71 minutes of music, how could I lose?

I found out how. If this had been a free download I would felt I had been ripped off.

If you like the sample, play it over and over for well over an hour. I guarantee, the effect will be the same as listening to the entire work. This piece is not slow moving, it is stationary. Any "development" is so slight it is virtually inaudible. This piece sounds like a heavily sedated person is leaning against a piano, idling poking at the keys while staring blankly into space. Listening to "For Bunita Marcus" provides all the intellectual and emotional satisfaction of listening to a dripping faucet all night, but it isn't nearly as enjoyable.

To be honest, I didn't listen to the whole thing. After about twenty minutes I started fast-forwarding and spot checking at a couple of dozen points. Wherever I stopped to listen, it sounded exactly like the sample again -- and again and again and again and...

There may be a pseudo-intellectual justification for this tedious nonsense, but in musical terms, it just plain doesn't work on any level. Morton Feldman should have been deeply ashamed of himself for this succssful experiment in utilizing a piano as a torture device. Even the thought of all the manuscript paper he wasted writing out this "score" is appalling.

For the extremely prententious and anti-musical only.
