Renowned pianist Ian Pace recreates David Tudor’s New Year’s Day programme from 1952, throwing the spotlight on a seminal moment when the European avant-garde and US experimental traditions seemed briefly in alignment.

Pierre Boulez Piano Sonata No. 2 (1946-8)
Morton Feldman Variations (1951)
Christian Wolff For Piano 1 (1952)
John Cage Music of Changes (1951)
