AllMusic Review by

On this 1970s recording, John Cage directs his compositions "Music for Marcel Duchamp," "Music for Amplified Toy Pianos," "Radio Music," "4:33," and "Sixty Two Mesostics Re Merce Cunningham." The works cover the most creative period of the American composer's career, 1947 through 1972. What makes this recording special is the performance from the Italian group that includes Juan Hildago, Walter Marchetti, Gianni Simonetti, and Demetrio Stratos. One of the better realizations of John Cage's work.
