Notes & Reviews:

George Crumb's series of "American Songbooks" has been the composer's primary occupation during the last decade, and the largest project of the composer's career. Writing about the American Songbooks I and III, ClassicsToday.com critic David Hurwitz states that "Crumb is a national treasure, and one of the very few contemporary composers whose new works are worth waiting for. These song cycles are masterpieces, plain and simple, and you must hear them." American Songbooks II and IV were composed for the forces that give them their premiere recording on this two-disc set.
