Amazing piece. A beautiful example of Crumb coaxing new sounds out of traditional instruments and incorporating new instruments as well. Also a wonderful study in percussion writing - this piece involves extensive percussion work. The scores are works of art themselves (hand drawn by Crumb). Highly recommended.
