“Whether playing the medieval lute, oud, sarod, and whether appearing alone, with his mentor Ali Akbar Khan, with Jordi Savall’s Hesperion XXI or with medieval chant expert Dominique Vellard, Ken Zuckerman is one of the world’s most eclectic masters of improvisation. His electrifying performances of medieval, Renaissance and classical Indian music leave his audiences breathless. Following sell-out performances in 2001, he returns to the Purcell Room with two of his favourite musical colleagues, both master percussionists.” Phillip Pickett, South Bank Centre, February 2006.
