We begin what I hope will be a oceanic wave of homages to George Crumb, who is turning 90 years old. When I was very young, he was among the living composers who ignited my love of newly composed music belonging to our time. Somehow he was both ancient and utterly futuristic. I thank the teacher who first pointed me to him, Dr. Mary Wennerstrom, at Indiana University. It has been the love of a lifetime.
