Morton Feldman’s For Philip Guston

  • Rothko Chapel 1409 Sul Ross St. Houston, TX (map)

Presented in partnership with Houston Da Camera 

n the contemplative setting of Rothko Chapel, Da Camera presents Morton Feldman's monumental masterpiece For Philip Guston. Written in memory of his close friend, from whom the composer had been estranged for over ten years, this moving late work encompasses all that the fiercely independent composer invented in music.  Scored for flute/piccolo, percussion and piano, this rarely performed serene and majestic work is a four-hour marathon featuring Claire Chase on flute/piccolo, Steven Schick on percussion, and Sarah Rothenberg  on piano. Audience members are welcome to experience as much of the event as they choose.
