John Zorn continues to conquer every musical thought and every artistic proposition by releasing The Alchemist, focusing on his work for string quartets to produce a celestial, religiously informed record about the mythological lives of John Dee and Edward Kelley. Spectral compositions from an artist influenced by everything that has ever existed.

8/10 Customer review, 28th June 2017

This album has two different compositions. The first one for string quartet, and the second only for voices. I love the strings quartet of Zorn. This is a sterling demonstration of the versatile compositional work of John Zorn - pure contemporary music. All depends of your taste, if you like this kind of music have a serious think about getting this CD, it's alienating though so you are welcome to ignore this recommendation. Both compositions are great and display two sides of a serious contemporary composer.
