Neal Meyer: Gradus: Three Rungs

GRADUS for Fux, Tesla and Milo the Wrestler is Neal Meyer’s piano composition-in-perpetual-progress. The nutshell version of the score is: “Learn to play the piano one note at a time.” Since January 2002, Neal Meyer has been systematically realizing GRADUS through extended improvisations on each individual piano tone, and all possible combinations of piano tones.
