Get ready for some of the most beautiful music Zorn has ever made! Here he turns to chamber music simplicity with an intimate ensemble of harp, vibraphone and guitar inspired by Early Music, Debussy, the minimalism of Reich, Riley and Glass and esoteric spiritual traditions from around the world. The music is lyrical and hypnotic, perfect for early morning meditation, a lonely afternoon, or midnight contemplation. Performed with great feeling by long time Zorn collaborators Bill Frisell, Carol Emanuel and Kenny Wollesen, who interact with sensitivity and grace The Gnostic Trio is one of Zorn's most tender and subtle 21st century ensembles.
Another of John Zorn's many faces – this time, a lyrical, mystical one. A chamber concert by The Gnostic Trio, suffused with harmonies of guitar, harp and vibraphone, encourages to contemplate and meditate the pure beauty of sound. The Clavicle of Solomon and Bagatelles, inspired by ancient spiritual traditions (the latter arranged for computer by Ikue Mori) will be performed by brilliant instrumentalists: Bill Frisell, Kenny Wollesen and Carol Emanuel.
