Three relatively late works by John Cage, performed by Apartment House. 'Two' (1987) was the first of his number pieces, while 'Hymnkus' (1986) is an one-off from the year before. 'Thoreau Drawings' (1974) is a very rarely performed work in two halves. In the first section the ensemble interpret shapes taken from drawings by Henry David Thoreau, and the second half is a (mono) field recording made at dawn in August1974 by the composer David Behrman in the small town of Stony Point, NY.
