  • about this album

    Composer George Crumb’s title piece, evoking Vietnam and called "an unusually elevated and searing Vietnam War protest" by the New York Times, sets a dark, powerful tone for this collection, which addresses the political/physical/spiritual consequences of war. London’s Evening Standard includes the album among its “100 Definitive Classical CDs of the 20th Century.”
