There has rarely been a musician as versatile and prolific as John Zorn, whose genre bending creativity has excited audiences and confounded critics and academics for 40 years. One of his greatest achievements are his compositions for string quartet, which are among the most important contributions to the genre since Carter and Bartok. Spanning almost three decades, these six quartets are each a world of their own, and run the gamut from cartoon madness, hardcore intensity, hebrew spirituality, hermetic romanticism, Crowlean Magick and Alchemical Mysticism. This unprecedented concert presents all six of Zorn's remarkably varied quartets along with the US premiere of  Pandora's Box, his striking new composition for string quartet and soprano written for the Arditti Quartet. Featuring the virtuosic young quartet JACK Quartet and Tony Arnold on voice, this marathon concert of Zorn's complete quartets is not to be missed.
