  • Originally released in 1998 as the first in the MUSIC ROMANCE series, John Zorn's MUSIC FOR CHILDREN is something of a misnomer in that its contents, apart from a certain wide-ranging playfulness, have little to do with children (or romance for that matter). Rather, this is a highly eclectic entry from a composer-musician much noted for his eclecticism. True, the opening "Fils Des Etoiles" features a charming music box-and-percussion duo from Anthony Coleman and Cyro Baptista, but we are quickly led into abrasive Naked City cut-and-paste territory with "This Way Out." Following this is "Music For Children" itself, an accomplished chamber piece featuring percussionist Willian Winant's trio with pianist Julie Steinberg and violinist David Abel. And so it goes. The 10th Anniversary edition of MUSIC FOR CHILDREN features a revised version of the lengthy Edgar Varese-inspired sound installation "Cycles Du Nord," wherein special guest Lou Reed's feedback guitar has been grafted onto Zorn's original (and noisy) wind machine-generated track.
