Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Images brings together the piano music of George Crumb with that of two of his major influences, Claude Debussy and Béla Bartók, as well as that of one of his contemporaries, John Adams. All of these composers speak a common language, one that explores pianistic timbre in a distinctive, evocative manner. Featured on the album is award-winning Steinway Artist John Milbauer.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
In his performance of descriptively titled works by these composers, Milbauer blurs the distinctions between sight and sound with astonishing versatility. An engaging program.
