8/10 Jack 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.
