From my interview with George Crumb, here's a glimpse of a genius at work:
George plays part of a new folk song cycle he is working on...that he had sketched that morning. "I wonder as I wander"
It's going to be part of Composing Thoughts, an occassional series on WITF featuring composers and their craft.
BTW, George is up for a Grammy Award this year again:
Category 103 - Best Small Ensemble Performance (with or without Conductor) (Award to the Ensemble (and to the Conductor.))
