“Even a brief dip into his bagatelles — short, playful pieces — leaves your head spinning: exhilarated, exhausted … these are performances of exceptional warmth and camaraderie, of shared purpose and extroverted fun.” The New York Times

From March to May 2015 John Zorn wrote 300 new compositions collected in a book of music called The Bagatelles. Skirball is proud to present a two-day marathon concert of 20 different ensembles performing over 100 different compositions from Zorn’s expansive new book of music. Hot from performing in Hamburg and Paris earlier in the year, these groups are performing better than ever and include core members of Zorn’s inner circle as well as exciting young players from the worlds of rock, jazz and classical music—many new to the Zorn universe.
