Description: These are Cage's complete short works for prepared piano, dating from 1940-52, containing some of his most easily approachable music as the variety of foreign objects placed in the body of the piano, on and around the strings, was capable of producing amazingly exotic and seductive sounds, although by 1952, "indeterminacy" was just around the corner. 2 CDs. Philipp Vandré (prepared piano).
