Tzadik is proud to present three world premiere recordings and a critically acclaimed classic by one of the world's greatest living composers. For almost six decades Milton Babbitt has been pushing the boundaries of contemporary composition creating a unique world of sound, form and color. Here, as one would expect, Babbitt is at his most radical. Two striking string quartets, including the first recording of his challenging sixth quartet performed by a special group organized by new music legend Fred Sherry, are balanced with rare electronic masterpiece Occasional Variations and a virtuosic guitar composition evoking legendary jazzman Eddie Lang. An exciting program of compositional fireworks by one of today's most acclaimed, yet misunderstood composers.
