Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Just why the whispering, scraping, buzzing, moaning, and chiming of George Crumb's epic 'Makrokosmos I and II' continue to fascinate after 30 years is something of an enigma... Now, here is Toros Can making them tingle and vibrate through the cosmos again, part of a welcome revival of this composer's quietly poetic, strangely durable music. Crumb's attenuated minimalism echoes Chopin (of the Nocturnes), Liszt Bartok, and especially Debussy, yet the totality is utterly individual. He has what the Romantics called Imagination, something impossible to quantify or pin down, probably having little to do with the elaborate astrological allusions cited by the ample notes to this recording." -American Record Guide
