O’s Notes: Novik is a San Francisco-based clarinetist/composer who marries several genres for Secret of Secrets. This is an edgy session with elements of grunge, Jewish gematria and heavy metal. The program has five distinct movements each with different character but all pushing the envelope. There are a wealth of supporting musicians including Fred Frith (g), Ben Goldberg (cl) and Carla Kihlstedt (violin). Strap yourself in and get ready for an adventurous ride.
