Crumb: Vox Balaenae / Robert Aitken, New Music Concerts
The performances are all very good indeed. Robert Aitken directs and takes the flute parts in all four works, and his timbre acts as the program's unifying thread. All of this music has been recorded before, either by Bridge in its complete edition, or elsewhere on individual releases (you can find An Idyll and Vox Balaenae on a celebrated New World release containing Jan DeGaetani's performance of the four books of Madrigals), but you can certainly purchase this economical, well-engineered disc with complete confidence if the couplings suit your fancy.
