John Cage – Dream (1948)

Piano solo performed by Stephen Drury.

Dream, in fact, was composed at the request of Cage’s longtime collaborator, dancer/choreographer Merce Cunningham. As was his usual practice, Cage began work on Dream only after the dance was completely planned and Cunningham had given him a list of the metric patterns for each dance as a template from which Cage could proceed. source
