“Les Maudits presents three dynamic chamber pieces inspired by heroic "cursed" artists of French culture. Demolishing all boundaries and pushing the artistic envelope beyond all expectations Ubu is a triumphant return to the file-card studio technique that produced such masterpieces as Spillane, Elegy, Kristallnacht and Femina. A bizarre musical portrait of the subversive writer Alfred Jarry, Ubu is one of Zorn's greatest and most outrageous creations.
Also included are two pieces performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble--one inspired by radical French poet Charles Baudelaire, and Oviri, a touching elegy to artist Paul Gauguin.”
