The Seasons is a ballet with music by John Cage and choreography by Merce Cunningham, first performed in 1947. It was Cage's first piece for orchestra and also the first to use what Cage later called the gamut technique, albeit in an early form. Cage composed the music in early 1947, in the midst of working on Sonatas and Interludes. A piano version was first completed, and an orchestral arrangement followed. Cage dedicated The Seasons to Lincoln Kirstein. The ballet was premiered on May 17, 1947 by. The Seasons: I. Prelude - American Composers Orchestra, John Cage.

Victoria, Cage September 5, 1912 - August 12, 1992 was 'an American composer, philosopher, poet, music theorist, artist, printmaker' and for those who have not embraced the musical gifts of this great man, this CD is probably the finest place to start. The spectrum of works here range from early ones to his last piece. The Seasons, Ballet in One Act' is a wonderful little work that changes each of the four seasons with the humor and subtle quotations from other composers. JOHN CAGE - The Seasons.
