Erik Friedlander performs VOLAC
The Book of Angels, Masada Book II by John Zorn
At The Village Vanguard
Volac is an intimate and breathtaking recital by one of the world’s most accomplished cellists. A vital member of the Masada family from the very beginning, Erik Friedlander has hypnotized audiences both here and in Europe with his own bands Bonebridge, The Broken Arm Trio, and Black Phoebe. Stepping out in a special solo project, Erik shows off his remarkable technique in ten compositions from Zorn’s lyrical Book of Angels. This is Erik at his best. Rich, romantic, gripping music to both challenge and soothe the savage beast.
