Today we will hear one of the most spectacular new albums I've heard in a while, "Le silence de l'Exode" by French clarinetist Yom. Yom composed this instrumental quartet to commune with the founding myth of the Jewish people. Originally commissioned for a stage at the Isle de France festival in Paris; it was written for the unusual combination of clarinet, cello, doublebass, and Iranian percussion (zarb, daf, bendir) and performed by Yom, Farid D, Claude Tchamitchian, Bijan Chemirani respectively. It is a work of searing Biblical intensity and haunting beauty. Magnificent!
