From Silence to Sorcery

Zorn, John: From Silence to Sorcery (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Three distinctive instrumental works touching upon themes of magic and mysticism. Goetia are spells and incantations for summoning demonic spirits and this colorful set of variations for solo violin draws upon the ancient alliance between the violin and the devil. Gris-Gris is a virtuosic work for thirteen tuned drums inspired by the music of Korean Shamanism, Haitian Voodoo and a scene from Howard Hawks' classic film To Have and Have Not. It receives a spectacular performance by one of the world's leading avant-garde percussionists-William Winant . Completing the program is one of Zorn's most personal and elusive ensemble pieces. Scored for clavichord, three muted strings and percussion, Shibboleth is a stunning tribute to the enigmatic Jewish poet Paul Celan."-Tzadik
