The iconic avant-gardist John Zorn returns to Miller with an incredibly ambitious lineup, featuring four world premieres played by some of his favorite musicians from New York and beyond. A top-shelf selection of soloists will play virtuosic new works written just for them, while larger ensemble pieces round out the program, infused throughout with Zorn’s characteristic vitality, rhythmic drive, and rockstar solo passages.
JUST ADDED: Don't miss a rare solo encore performed by Zorn himself on the beautiful Aeolian-Skinner organ at St. Paul's Chapel on Columbia's campus following the Portrait. FREE with a Zorn Portrait ticket or Columbia ID.
Major support for Composer Portraits is provided by
the Francis Goelet Charitable Lead Trusts and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
The commission of Bateau Ivre was made possible by the Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Program, with generous funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Chamber Music America Endowment Fund.
