Charlemagne Palestine
Charlemagne at Sonnabend

2 CD, c@s 2001

"the first contact between charlemagne palestine and the sonnabends took place in paris with simone forti. it was 1972 and colaboration immediately started. soon after charlemagne created a sound installation at their gallery on rue mazarine in paris and then, when they decided to move to west broadway soho and leave paris, they asked the composer to inaugurate their new soho address by creating a double disk, "4 manifestations on 6 elements". the sonnabends organised several concerts and installations with charlemagne until the middle seventies. some time after the composer gave up performances and his sculpture was presented more in europe than america. at the end of the nineties a new meeting happened and the sonnabends announced that they had decided to leave soho for a bigger space in chelsea and proposed again for charlemagne palestine to create a disk. this time it was agreed to record a series of performances done directly in their new space on 22nd street and so "charlemagne at sonnabend" was born. the 2 disks comprise a private performance recorded at their gallery 2 days before the concerts on a sunday (which is disk one) and the second disk comprises the 2 live performances recorded on the following tuesday and wednesday middle of september 2000. all the performances are played on a bosendorfer imperial piano."
