Summary
This comprehensive examination of John Cage's seminal Concert for Piano and Orchestra places the piece into its many contexts. The authors examine its relationship with Cage's compositional practice of indeterminacy more generally, the importance of Cage's teacher, Arnold Schoenberg, on the development of his structural thought, and the impact of Cage's (mis)understanding of jazz. It discusses, on the basis of Cage's sketches and manuscripts, the compositional process at play in the piece. It details the circumstances of the piece's early performances - often described as catastrophes - its recording and promotion, and the part it played in Cage's (successful) hunt for a publisher
