QUOTES: ON DAVID TUDOR

Advertisements

“One line on Tudor is that he taught a generation of composers new ways of listening. Pauline Oliveros says of Tudor that he was “a master musician who taught patience, perseverance and listening by his actions and preparations for the performances, and mostly without words”. But another view would be that Tudor played the notes he wanted, rather than reading what was on the page, and by sheer force of personality and by dint of a virtual monopoly on chewy avant garde piano made them work better than the given text”. – Brian Morton Wire magazine, Jan 2015
