Morton Feldman’s For Bunita Marcus (1985) is one of the great piano masterpieces of the late 20th century. Building on a handful of notes and pregnant pauses, Feldman uses his singular talent to spin magic glass and dance through silence. Lasting 72 minutes in one unbroken movement, For Bunita Marcus brings music to the event horizon.
