John Zorn: For Your Eyes Only
John Zorn: Angelus Novus
Recital by an award-winner of the Martin Musical Scholarship Fund.
John Zorn, the all-round musician from New York and classic of musical counterculture, is one of the rare creative minds who have succeeded in bridging the chasm between various musical genres. This event celebrates his 60th birthday.
'For Your Eyes Only' is a frenzied and sarcastic collage piece, in which snippets from all kinds of music - be it classical, klezmer, hardcore punk, cartoon or avant-garde - clash against each other at a manic speed as particles do in an atom smasher.
However, Zorn is also a composer of meditation and mystery as 'Angelus novus' reveals.Performers
