In the third of these special City Circus programs, listen to highlights from a "Wall to Wall Cage & Friends" concert recorded live at Symphony Space back in 1982.  There's a percussion piece by John Cage, another percussion work by Henry Cowell, as well as some unplanned readings by the composer himself.

Also, listen to Margaret Leng Tan performing one of Cage's prepared piano works, "Baccanale." Then, rounding out the show, hear the Arditti String Quartet performing "Four," from a recording released on a French record label.
