About

This important recording features the premiere recording of the final instalment of George Crumb's monumental American Songbook series. Songbook 7, titled Voices from the Heartland, includes songs both humorous and tragic, and concludes with the largest song setting of the cycle, the native American 'Song of the Earth'. As in previous works in this cycle, Crumb employs a percussion “orchestra” of more than 100 instruments, creating a rich tapestry of beguiling sounds.

Also included is the premiere recording of Sun and Shadow, Crumb's new cycle on poems of Lorca.
