"If Webern had a cat, this is what Webern’s cat would have written."
That's how one of the judges described Piece for Piano, Four Paws, a prizewinning entry in the Paris New Music Review’s One-Minute Competition in 1997.
The composer, a black and white cat named Ketzel (Yiddish for 'cat'), sadly passed away last week at her New York home having reached the grand old age of 19 (the equivalent of 93 in human years).
Her solitary oeuvre was performed several times in public, earning her $19.72 in royalties. More (including audio) in the New York Times.
