"Erik Friedlander can do things with a cello that should have a reasonable listener fearing for her life. Rostropovich one second and Rottweiler the next." -- Pitchfork
We are pleased to welcome cellist Erik Friedlander back after far too many years! In this special evening, he will perform John Zorn's Volac, an intimate and breathtaking recital--rich, romantic, and gripping music to both challenge and soothe. 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. Stepping out in this special solo project, Erik shows off his remarkable technique in ten compositions from Zorn's lyrical Book of Angels.
