John Zorn: Les Maudits

cover image

Les Maudits presents three dynamic chamber pieces inspired by heroic "cursed" artists of French culture. Demolishing all boundaries and pushing the artistic envelope beyond all expectations Ubu is a triumphant return to the file-card studio technique that produced such masterpieces as Spillane, Elegy, Kristallnacht and Femina. A bizarre musical portrait of the subversive writer Alfred Jarry, Ubu is one of Zorn's greatest and most outrageous creations.Also included are two pieces performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble--one inspired by radical French poet Charles Baudelaire, and Oviri, a touching elegy to artist Paul Gauguin.
