Zorn, John: On The Torment Of Saints, The Casting Of Spells And The Evocaton Of Spirits (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Three pieces of magic and religious mysticism performed by a new generation of musical masters! Written as a companion piece to "Walpurgisnacht" (2004), "All Hallows' Eve" is a tour de force in three movements for string trio-satanic counterpoint for the Witches' Sabbath. Written as a gift to the ICE ensemble, Zorn wrote "The Tempest" as a musical reading of Shakespeare's mystical and enigmatic last play. Finally, the virtuosic Chicago-based Fifth House Ensemble performs Zorn's mini piano concerto in the form of a philosophical dialogue between St. Anthony and his tormentors."-Tzadik
