Matthew Welch: Blarvuster CD (Tzadik Composer Series 8077)

from Kotekan Records

Order a copy of Blarvuster's 2010 debut CD album from Tzadik Records.

John Zorn: "Matthew Welch is an exciting young composer, saxophonist and virtuoso piper who has discovered the hidden nexus of the Celtic and Balinese musical traditions. Matt’s second CD for Tzadik presents two exciting new projects: a beautifully orchestrated opera expanding on the language of minimalism with honesty and originality, and his dynamic touring band BLARVUSTER, which blends the complex skirls and rhythmic subtleties of the Highland pipes with a vibrant rock sensibility. Featuring the best out of yet another generation of downtown musicians, this is lush and exotic new music from a fresh new compositional explorer."
