The latest volume in a continuing series documenting Zorn’s varied and creative work for film features one of his most popular ensembles - the Masada String Trio. Feldman, Friedlander and Cohen are not only brilliant soloists, but also sensitive ensemble players, thoughtful composer/arrangers and the best of friends. Their incredible rapport is at its best in this haunting score for Aviva Slesin’s documentary film on Jewish children hidden from the Nazis during the Shoah. Orchestral arrangements, intimate improvisations, lyricism and a handful of new Masada tunes make this one of Zorn’s most memorable film scores.
