About

Volume 18 of Bridge's Complete Crumb Edition features premiere recordings of two recent works (The Yellow Moon of Andalusia and Yesteryear) as well the premiere recording of the recently revised version of a Crumb classic, Celestial Mechanics. Crumb returns to his favourite poet, Federico Garcia Lorca, for The Yellow Moon of Andalusia, six settings of English translations of Lorca's work. The performance features the work's dedicatees, the brilliant American soprano Tony Arnold, and the superb pianist, Marcantonio Barone. Mr. Barone follows with Crumb's 'Thelonious Monk variations' for solo piano, Eine Kleine Mitternachtmusik. Crumb was never satisfied with the ending of Celestial Mechanics and re-wrote it in 2012, recorded here for the first time. Yesteryear is a vocalise for soprano and three players, dedicated to Ms. Arnold. Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winning composer George Crumb, now in his 88th year, continues to compose highly expressive, colourful and dramatic music. This new recording is a must-hear for all fans of a unique voice in contemporary music.
