This week we received copies of BRIDGE’s volume 18 of The Complete Crumb Edition.  Thank you NMUSA and everyone who helped make this series a reality.

The performances are all by long-time Crumb advocates–soprano Tony Arnold, pianist Marcantonio Barone, and the fabulous duo pianists Quattro Mani. 

Here’s a link to the disc:


Composer George Crumb is one of the grandmasters of American art music. His compositional voice has been a major part of the American and global soundscape since the 1960s. We are seeking support for the editing, mastering, and post-production of three works by Crumb – two premiere recordings, Yesteryear (soprano Tony Arnold, pianist Marcantonio Barone, percussionists William Kerrigan and David Nelson) and Yellow Moon of Andalusia (Tony Arnold, Marcantonio Barone) and a composer-overseen definitive version of a recent large-scale piano work, Eine Kleine Mitternachtmusik (Marcantonio Barone).

Bridge Records, Inc. is working to produce and release these performances in a high-quality recording that will be distributed online and physically to a worldwide audience. Producer David Starobin and Engineer Adam Abeshouse are both long-time advocates of George Crumb’s work, and have received numerous awards for their previous recordings on Bridge’s “Complete Crumb Edition” series.

The recording has taken place at Swarthmore College in Philadelphia. This allowed George Crumb to attend all recording sessions, providing oversight and clarification during the recording sessions. Given the often complex nature of Crumb’s scores, this insight has proved invaluable for previous recordings which have benefited from Crumb’s presence.

All performers are long-time experts in the work of Crumb, having performed and recorded his work for much of their careers. Tony Arnold and Marcantonio Barone are the dedicatees of Yellow Moon of Andalusia and Yesteryear. Crumb has requested that Barone be the pianist to record this definitive edition of Eine Kleine Mitternachtmusik.
