This album was released in 1975 by George Crumb, an American contemporary musician who devoted many years to music education as a university teacher. This is the third in a series of albums in which Crumb uses two amplified pianos and percussion to create a macrocosm, featuring Gilbert Kalish (p), James Freeman (p), Raymond DesRoches (perc), and Richard Fitz (perc). It is an epic suite of five movements. The acoustic piano and percussion resonate three-dimensionally in a wide sound field, creating a weightless space. In particular, the overtones in the high register of the percussion are very pleasantly extended.
