John Zorn: Chimeras

Album Summary

>Zorn, John : Chimeras I-XII
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Newly revised, this is the definitive version of a Zorn masterpiece! Loosely inspired by the remarkable worlds of Henry Darger, Lewis Carroll and Unica Zurn, which throw childlike innocence against a backdrop of violence and perversion, 'Chimeras' is one of Zorn's greatest works in the classical tradition. A work of fantasy and imagination scored for a Pierrot Lunaire ensemble plus percussion, the work has be resequenced, remastered, and a brief, fleeting newly recorded postlude has been added. Dramatic and colorful, 'Chimeras' is a work filled with femininity, innocence, beauty and violence.
