John Zorn at the Stone Reviewed

English: John Zorn Français : John Zorn

From The New York Times:

John Zorn, the prolific avant-garde American composer and saxophonist whose audacious works draw on modernist, jazz and hard-core styles and more, nodded to Beethoven in classifying as bagatelles some 300 snippets of pieces he composed this spring. As he explained on Sunday afternoon to an audience that packed the Stone, the no-frills Lower East Side performance space he founded, his bagatelles are like compact tunes written on a single staff, but packed with “harmonic, melodic and rhythmic information.”
