George Crumb's music is, I know, not be to everyone's taste. Some find it overly precious. But there are beauties abounding in his smaller works. This CD from Bridge Records features excellent recording standards, and it is the 9th in Bridge's series that focusses on Crumb's music -- currently Bridge is releasing a growing collection of similarly excellently performed and recorded works by Stefan Wolpe. The performances here are top-notch, but the recording itself is really fine -- one can hear all the little details in Crumb's scores. The surface of Crumb's music has never sounded so attractive.

Ancient Voices and the four books of Madrigals are sets of magnificently imaginative modern music. Crumb has one foot in atonality, part of a foot ironically in a Bartokian folk-like idiom, with toes dipping into Elizabethan era consort music and the softer world of Morty Feldman.

For listeners who don't know Crumb's music, this CD offers a superb introdcution.
