Morton Feldman (1926-1987) is among the most influential American composers of the twentieth century, a man whose music is known for its extreme quiet and delicate beauty (while Feldman himself was famously large and loud). Karlheinz Stockhausen once asked the composer what his "secret" was: "I don't push the sounds around," Feldman replied. His writings resemble his music in their quiet steadiness, their oscillations between assertion and doubt. They are also funny and illuminating, not only about his own music but about the entire New York School of painters, poets and composers that coalesced in the 1950s, including Feldman's friends Jackson Pollock, Philip Guston, Mark Rothko, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank O'Hara and John Cage. Give My Regards to Eighth Street is an authoritative collection of Feldman's writings, culled from published articles, program notes, LP liners, lectures, interviews and unpublished writings. It is one of those rare books from which anyone can draw inspiration, no matter what the vocation or discipline.

From Our Editors

New York City composer Morton Feldman had a loud Bronx personality, as well as a legendary and colourful one, but was perhaps most popular for his quiet and melancholy music. Give My Regards to Eighth Street: Essays and Lectures features an afterword by Frank O’Hara. This vastly entertaining collection sheds light on the New York School of painters, poets and musicians of the 1950s.
