‘George Crumb rarely fails to bowl one over.’ The Guardian

American Pioneers Some of the most pioneering, visionary leaders in the world of composition emerged from the USA during the 20th century. This programme presents a few of those composers displaying their diversity as well as their unique craftsmanship. The witty Piano Trio by Charles Ives contrasts with the darker world of George Crumb in his atmospheric and enigmatic Voice of the Whale in which the masked performers are bathed in blue light. The concert also features popular Minimalist works New York Counterpoint by Steve Reich and Road Movies by John Adams – music for our time full of drive, vigour and joy.   The Guardian  The Scotsman ‘remarkable’  The Herald ‘brilliant’  The Telegraph ‘most daring’

Programme Includes John Adams Road Movies (1995) Charles Ives Piano Trio (1911) Steve Reich New York Counterpoint (1985) George Crumb Vox Balaene (Voice of the Whale) (1971)
