John Zorn will return to the Heineken Jazzaldia following the resounding success of his Masada Marathon in 2013. This time round, he’ll do it as the frontman of the Bagatelles Marathon, split into two afternoon sessions at the Kursaal Auditorium; one on July 27th and the other on July 28th. The musical marathon will involve 14 different ensembles who will perform more than 50 compositions from The Bagatelles, John Zorn’s expansive new book of music. Among the more than thirty participating musicians are Mary Halvorson, Marc Ribot, Kris Davis, Julian Lage, Dave Douglas, Joey Baron, Craig Taborn, Peter Evans, John Medeski, Ikue Mori, Erik Friedlander, Mark Feldman, Sylvie Courvoisier, Kenny Wollesen, Trevor Dunn and many more who understand Zorn’s creative universe like nobody else. Bagatelles Marathon is a fascinating microcosm of John Zorn’s musical universe, including core members of his inner circle as well as exciting new players from the worlds of rock, jazz and classical music, all outstanding members of New York City’s vibrant downtown community.
