Garth Knox and The Saltarello Trio: Leonard: The Book of Angels Volume 30 CD

Drawing on his vast experience as viola player of the Arditti Quartet, Ensemble Inter Contemporain and his close collaboration with many of the today’s leading composers, Garth Knox has become a master of many styles. Presenting a completely new interpretation of the Book of Angels, the beautiful medieval-tinged arrangements produced by Garth Knox and his group capture the folk song quality of Zorn’s compositions with a lovely and intimate ensemble of strings and percussion. Playing viola and viola d’amore, Garth presents these enigmatic compositions in a new and refreshing light. This penultimate installment of the Book of Angels is also one of the most charmingly beautiful.
