Tzadik’s June releases:
Lukas Ligeti: Mystery System
A fabulous string quartet, a dynamic piece for percussion ensemble, a bizarre miniature for string quartet with drum machine and a classic composition for two marimbas from this interesting young composer of Hungarian descent, who was raised in Vienna, has lived off and on in Africa, and now makes his home here in New York. Featuring repetitive patterns, complex cross rhythms and a sly sense of humor Mystery System is another brilliant CD of adventurous music from the Ligeti family.
David Simons: Prismatic Hearing
David Simons is a composer/performer who combines percussion, theremin, digital electronics, and World Music in strikingly original compositions that defy classification. A close collaborator of vocalist Shelley Hirsch, David has toured with Samul Nori, Gamelan Son of Lion, Samm Bennett, Denman Maroney and the Estonian Perception Unit. His first CD for Tzadik presents the full range of his work, and is a fascinating compendium of experimental pieces, both acoustic and electric.
Roberto Juan Rodriguez: Baila! Gitano Baila!
Another charming CD of music from the imaginative mind of composer/performer Roberto Rodriguez, whose first CD El Danzon de Moises is one of Tzadik’s best sellers. Celebrating the elusive Jewish community of Cuba, Roberto has fashioned an exotic new music that brilliantly blends both Latin and Jewish traditions. Featuring a hot new band and brilliant new compositions Roberto’s new CD is as soulful as it is danceable.
John Zorn: Masada Recital Masada Anniversary Edition Vol. 4
Virtuosic fireworks and heartfelt lyricism from two of the most amazing musicians in new music. Performing a dozen compositions from the vast Masada repertory, including the world premiere of a piece never before performed, Masada Recital is another new interpretation of the now classic book of compositions expanding on the Jewish tradition.
