Presented by Kaufman Music Center at Merkin Concert Hall

New York's path-breaking Talea Ensemble joins forces with the unstoppable composer, improviser and performer John Zorn for a program of new and classic works. The program includes Zorn's “Prophetic Mysteries” for solo flute and two foley performers, and features Ikue Mori and the world premiere of a new trio for piano, bass and drums featuring Tyshawn Sorey and Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz along with Talea pianist Stephen Gosling. Also featured will be two of Zorn’s classic game pieces, "Rugby" and "Hockey," the latter including John Zorn on saxophone. Talea will perform the ensemble work “Bateau Ivre,” composed for Talea, and the world premiere of a new string trio.
