Crumb Makrokosmos, Book 1 - Twelve fantasy-pieces after the Zodiac for amplified piano.

Maki Sekiya honours the American composer on the first anniversary of his death.

George Crumb broke every rule in the book. He combined unconventional instruments, had his musicians employ unusual techniques, and was an early adopter of electronic and amplified sound. He created sonic landscapes that were sometimes mystical, sometimes arresting and he was the recipient of a Grammy Award and a Pulitzer Prize.

Oxford based pianist, Maki Sekiya, is no stranger to contemporary music. After gaining her diploma at Moscow Conservatory, she performed regularly in Moscow Contemporary Music Festival and, since settling in the UK, she has continued to programme contemporary pieces. For tonight's concert, she weaves a Renaissance chant, modern British, and Romantic fantasy with George Crumb’s ground-breaking Makrokosmos.
