Detailed Description

"The String Trio for George Crumb was commissioned by the Oregon Bach Festival Composers Symposium in honor of American composer George Crumb on the occasion of his 75th birthday. The work is in three movements. The first movement is constructed almost exclusively from the four pitches corresponding to the initial and final letters in Crumb's name: G, E, C and B. The second movement is based on the Sarabanda theme from Crumb's well-known work for electric string quartet, Black Angels, which is quoted in the middle of that movement. Both the second and third movements each fill 75 measures, marking Crumb's 75 years. The pitches G, E, C and B recur as a motif in the final movement (this time as G# and C#), as the piece concludes with a bit of fun. The String Trio for George Crumb was recorded by the Langroise Trio in December 2007 for their CD, Volante. ""You will enjoy this work immensely and want to hear more by this 'youthful' (50 years old!) composer."" --Paul Shoemaker reviewing the Langroise Trio CD Volante, Music Web International, Feb. 2009. Here are the YouTube videos for an excellent performance: http://youtu.be/jxIxkUrzQsY?list=PLC467B58A453D766A ".
