Makrokosmos, Volume II, like its predecessor, is comprised of 12 pieces laid out in three groups of four each. I conceive of the whole work as a very gradual intensification of tempo and dynamics up to the climactic eight piece ('A Prophecy of Nostradamus') and a subsequent spinning out to the beautifully sustained and almost hypnotic 'Dona Nobis Pacem' conclusion. (George Crumb).
