5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing as spring water, 20 Oct. 2010
By 
This review is from: 4'33'' (3 parts: 30'' / 2'23'' / 1'40'', 1952) (MP3 Download)
This piece of music, seemingly a joke, is not: its purpose is to make the listener aware of ambient sound itself. The four-and-a-half minutes of silence make you aware of what you're missing while music blares at you (and how much of your music do you actually *listen* to?). Thus, the stillness of this piece has the effect of revitalising the eardrums, which need something like this as the palate needs a sip of water between courses. Even its splitting into three movements points up another sound: in concert performances, the movements are interrupted by the awful coughing you always get at classical concerts, followed by self-conscious laughter. But this is a studio rendition, and very nicely produced it is too: every instrument is there as it is meant to be.

This classical masterpiece is ideal for those fed up of the incessant sameness of mass-produced music, and would even make a good Christmas present for a discerning relative.
