George Crumb should be seen not as an isolated, iconoclastic voice who emerged unexpectedly in the ‘60s and continues to follow his own separate path, but as another important historical figure in the long line of American maverick composers... As a composer in search of transcendence, think of Ives, Cowell, Morton, Partch, Ellington, Nancarrow, Carter, Cage, Feldman,Tenney, Monk, among others, each in their own way. It is in this company that George Crumb belongs. A company beyond category. — Art Lange
