Notes and Editorial Reviews

Combining the sound of two of Zorn’s most popular and beloved groups, Bar Kokhba and The Dreamers, The Concealed is a sonic journey filled with surprise, elation and mystery. The latest volume in Zorn’s continuing series of 21st century mystical works features the dynamic quartet Nova Express augmented by the brilliant string masters Erik Friedlander and Mark Feldman creating a remarkable allstar sextet that combines and recombines into a variety of powerful small chamber ensembles. With arrangements ranging from solo pieces to trios, quartets and of course the lush exotic sound of the full sextet, the music is lyrical, enigmatic and stunningly beautiful. Referencing various esoteric traditions out of the East, this is a CD for relaxed Read more listening and contemplation.
