About the album

The first release of Zorn's orchestral work in over 15 years, this CD brings together four of Zorn's compositions for large ensembles including the legendary Orchestra Variations (1996) commissioned by the New York Philharmonics and the monumental masterwork Suppots et Supplications (2012) commissioned by the BBC Symphony and inspired by the late writings of Antonin Artaud. Also included is the definitive performance of Zorn's violin concerto Contes de Fees, brilliantly performed by Chris Otto, and the lush string orchestra version of Zorn's soulful Kol Nidre. Performed here by a special hand-picked orchestra of New York virtuosos under the baton of maestro David Fulmer and recorded live at Miller Theatre for Zorn's 60th birthday concert, this is the orchestra like you have never heard it before. Spectacular, dramativ and colofurl music passionately performed by 83 dedicated new music masters - a special release indeed!
