From Georgia Straight:

BURIED IN THE fine print surrounding the Silk Road Ensemble’s upcoming Vancouver Recital Society concert is some extremely startling news, and it has nothing to do with the whereabouts of founding member Yo-Yo Ma. (Just for the record, the esteemed cellist won’t perform at Friday’s concert, although 11 equally gifted musicians from around the globe will.) Instead, it’s that Silk Road will be performing a suite of pieces from American avant-gardist John Zorn’s Book of Angels compositional project.
