Frequency Festival Presents Morton Feldman Chamber Players

  • Constellation 3111 North Western Avenue Chicago, IL, 60618 United States (map)

Founded by Andy Costello in Boston in Spring of 2014, Morton Feldman Chamber Players (MFCP) is a new music group dedicated to programming the chamber works of Morton Feldman and beyond.  MFCP often hosts discussions, open rehearsals, and live performances around the work of Feldman and those influenced by his music. Presenting the unique bond between composer Morton Feldman and writer Samuel Beckett, Morton Feldman Chamber Players examine the relationship between words and music, a relationship that is complementary and contradictory, amicable and hostile. Both works on tonight’s program intimately explore abstract failures, and, ultimately, those failures as the hidden goal of humanity.
