Zorn, John: The String Quartets (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"At last all four of ZornÕs infamous compositions for string quartet are available on CD! Originally commissioned by the world-renown Kronos Quartet, three of these pieces are recorded here for the first time. From the cartoon/montage qualities of the popular "Cat OÕNine Tails," to the S/M poetry of "The Dead Man," the hermetic philosophy of "Memento Mori" and the spiritual transcendence of "Kol Nidre," these four quartets take on and challenge the tradition of classical string quartets from Beethoven, Bart—k, Webern, Carter and Ferneyhough, forging an exciting new world of their own. Performed by an exciting new quartet of Zorn veterans and new music virtuosos, ZornÕs unique compositional voice shines like never before."-Tzadik
