Morton Feldman's Extensions 3

Howard Skempton singles out Extensions 3 by the American composer Morton Feldman, a piece he found "liberating, inspiring, and radically different". Paul Griffiths places the work in Feldman's early output and highlights the challenges to performers of music which is both very slow and very quiet. Plus excerpts from a BBC archive interview in which Feldman himself describes his approach to composition.
