There were no tickets to be had for the John Cage concert at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the queue for returns snaked down to the river. The QEH holds 1100 seats. That’s a lot of Cage fans.
The concert featured the chart-topping 4’33”, together with the String Quartet In Four Parts, Radio Music, Music For Eight, and the Concert For Piano And Orchestra, performed simultaneously with Fontana Mix.
There is an ongoing exhibition of Cage sketches and drawings at the neighbouring Hayward Gallery. Linked story here.
