John Cage, Composer Monday, October 22, 2012

John Cage was a 20th century avant-garde composer whose inventive compositions and unorthodox ideas profoundly influenced mid-20th century music.  One composition, called 4’33″, is a famous (or infamous, depending on who you’re talking to,) piece.

Newly back in print from Peters Publishing, this composition is in facsimile edition.  There is a story about the piece, and a letter John Cage wrote to a friend about the piece included in the manuscript.  If you would like to know more about this music,  other John Cage music, or other 20th century piano music, please call us at 1-800-42-MUSIC,  or email us at
