Philip Glass: Music for the Crucible for Violin & Piano / Miranda Cuckson, violin; Jeffrey Zeigler, cello

Notes & Reviews:

This recording from Orange Mountain Music features music by Philip Glass written for a 2016 Broadway production of Arthur Miller's play The Crucible. Miller's works are staples of American literature. He wrote The Crucible in the early 1950s in response to McCarthyism, where modern-day witch trials were played out in a search to root out Communist elements in American society. Glass's score features forty minutes of music for violin and cello, but only half of that was used in the production. This album offers the complete original music, performed by violinist Miranda Cuckson and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler. It has been speculated that the combination of violin and cello plays on the duality that is ubiquitous in The Crucible... light versus dark, good versus evil and righteousness versus injustice.
