Notes & Reviews:

This CD combines two classic Crumb compositions of the 1970s expertly performed by members of The Carnegie Mellon Philhar-monic under the direction of conductor Juan Pablo Izquierdo. "Black Angels' for string quartet was written as a response to the Vietnam War. The work draws from an arsenal of sounds including shouting, chanting, whistling, gongs, maracas, and crystal glasses.
