New York, NY – 04/16/19 – Rose Studio at Lincoln Center – Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center; George Crumb at 90 Part 2

Who Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center; George Crumb at 90 Part 2 When Tuesday, April 16, 2019 7:30pm – Where Rose Studio at Lincoln Center (map) 165 West 65th Street, 10th Floor New York, NY Other InfoWhen George Crumb’s music hit main stages in the early 1970s, he was proclaimed “the savior of music.” In an era in which proponents of atonal, abstract music dismissed all who couldn’t understand it, Crumb’s luminous humanity appealed to those who longed for an emotional, visceral experience in contemporary music.

CMS pays tribute to Crumb with two probing programs which reveal the composer in all his kaleidoscopic creativity. Featured in this CMS mini-festival is pianist Gilbert Kalish, whose definitive interpretations helped fuel Crumb’s meteoric rise.

Program
Crumb The Ghosts of Alhambra (Spanish Songbook I) for Voice, Guitar, and Percussion (2008)
Crumb Black Angels (Thirteen Images from the Dark Land) for Electric String Quartet (1970)
Crumb Music for a Summer Evening (Makrokosmos III) for Two Amplified Pianos and Percussion (1974)
