The Hermetic Organ vol. 2 - St. Paul’s Chapel

A paraître en janvier, le deuxième volume des concerts d'orgue solo de John Zorn : 
John Zorn: The Hermetic Organ vol. 2—St. Paul’s Chapel [#8312]
Drawing upon traditions as varied as Messiaen, Xenakis, Ligeti, Bach, Tournemire, Ives, Korla Pandit and The Phantom of the Opera, Zorn’s organ improvisations are transcendent, inspiring, ecstatic experiences, offering a direct line to the workings of his rich compositional imagination. Performed at St. Paul’s Chapel at a time when the organ was undergoing extensive reconstruction, the limited number of stops available to him focused his imagination to new heights, resulting in Zorn’s most revelatory recital to date. The second volume documenting these legendary organ recitals is a transcendent experience filled with moments of passion, tenderness, fragility and extraordinary power. (Release date: January 2014)
