Trios by Zorn

Wednesday, June 3, 2015, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Rescheduled from January 27, 2015.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select early evenings.

New-music maverick John Zorn created this program of three works for violin, piano, and cello that run the gamut between heaven and hell. The Aristos presents “ten metaphysical ambiguities” for the musicians to perform, while Hexentarot—completed by Zorn on the eve of the Grand Sabbath Beltane—provides music for witches’ rites. With Amour Fou, the composer delves into a whirlwind of emotion at the core of human experience: crazy love.

Concert starts at 6 p.m. Admissison is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
