About the album

Bridge's Complete Crumb Edition reaches Volume 20 with the first complete recording of the great American composer's recently completed Metamorphoses cycle. The "20 Fantasy Pieces After Celebrated Paintings" are Crumb's "Pictures at an Exhibition"- aural interpretations of famous paintings from our recent past including works by Picasso, van Gogh, Chagall, and Dali. Critic David Hurwitz writes: "Bridge's decision to embark on a complete edition of George Crumb's music remains one of the most significant recording projects currently in progress, as well as one of the most artistically successful."
Die Crumb-Gesamtausgabe von Bridge erreicht Band 20 mit der ersten Gesamtaufnahme des kürzlich abgeschlossenen Metamorphosen-Zyklus des großen amerikanischen Komponisten. Die "20 Fantasiestücke nach berühmten Gemälden" sind Crumbs "Bilder einer Ausstellung" - akustische Interpretationen berühmter Gemälde aus unserer jüngsten Vergangenheit, darunter Werke von Picasso, van Gogh, Chagall und Dali. Der Kritiker David Hurwitz schreibt: "Die Entscheidung von Bridge, eine Gesamtausgabe von George Crumbs Musik in Angriff zu nehmen, ist nach wie vor eines der bedeutendsten Aufnahmeprojekte, die derzeit in Arbeit sind, und auch eines der künstlerisch erfolgreichsten."

Born in 1962, American pianist Marcantonio Barone made his debut at the age of ten at a Philadelphia Orchestra children's concert. He returned in 1990 as soloist on the Orchestra's subscription series under the direction of William Smith. He has also performed as soloist with the Saint Louis and Houston Symphony Orchestras, the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, among others. He has collaborated with such eminent conductors as Sir Simon Rattle, Leon Fleisher, Arther Fiedler, and Barry Tuckwell, and has performed in solo recitals at the Metropolitan Museum and at Weill Recital Hall in New York, at the Wigmore Hall in London, and at the Large Hall of the Saint Petersburg Filarmoniya.

He performs frequently as a member of the Lenape Chamber Ensemble, 1807 and Friends, Orchestra 2001, and many other groups. He has given the world premiere performances of works by several distinguished composers, including George Rochberg, David Finko, Gerald Levinson, and Thomas Whitman. In addition to his duties at Swarthmore, Mr. Barone is also on the faculty of the Bryn Mawr Conservatory of Music, where he is head of the piano department.
