Stephen Gosling Performing John Zorn in NY Reviewed

Source: The New York Times.

At the end of August, John Zorn’s record label, Tzadik, released “Encomia,” 43 minutes of mostly solo-piano music by Mr. Zorn, performed by Stephen Gosling. (He’s joined on one track by the violinist Chris Otto.)

So when Mr. Gosling came to the Miller Theater at Columbia University on Tuesday, for the first of the theater’s free early-evening “pop-up” concerts this season, you might have expected him to touch on at least one piece from “Encomia” — if only to promote the new release a bit.

He did not. Mostly because Mr. Zorn writes so quickly. Mr. Gosling was at the Miller to give the premiere of an even newer work for piano, “18 Studies From the Later Sketchbooks of J.M.W. Turner (1841-1845).”
