A spectacular program by a dynamic new quartet featuring two well acclaimed contemporary US musician - clarinetist Evan Ziporyn and guitar player Gyan Riley plus well known polish artists - clarinetist Wacław Zimpel and drummer Hubert Zemler.
The quartet performing the spiritual original compositions established by the members of the band. The musical program turns to chamber music simplicity with an intimate ensemble of double clarinets, guitar and drums inspired by Early Music, the minimalism of Reich, Riley and Glass and esoteric spiritual traditions from around the world. Powerful and hypnotic record!
