John Zorn: Azoth [#8375]
Jay Campbell (JACK Quartet) and Michael Nicolas (Brooklyn Rider) are two of the greatest cellists in new music. (Release date: November 2020) As always, Zorn pushes the envelope of what is technically possible on the instrument and Mike and Jay come to the plate full force, exhibiting a new level of virtuosity in these breathtaking and dramatic works. Years in the making, this is powerfully imaginative instrumental music by an all star ensemble of masters at the top of their game. Long-time members of Zorn’s inner circle, here they perform four compositions written expressly for them. (Release date: November 2020)
