More Info:

There is No More Firmament is a remarkable collection of recent compositions from 2013 2016 that showcase the range, variety and continued creativity of Zorn as he enters his sixties. Connected together with a thread of intensity, magic and madness, the music tells a twisted and complex story of a magical descent into madness. The compositions include two works for brass ensembles, a woodwind quintet, jazz piano trio, string trio and two solo pieces for clarinet and trumpet, with the outrageous trumpet solo Merlin appearing in two realizations, one by jazz master Peter Evans and another by the European classical virtuoso Marco Blauuw from MusikFabrik.
