Clifford Crawley: Moods & Miniatures
New Album of Music by Clifford Crawley

Professor Emeritus and pianist Maureen Volk announces the release of her new album Clifford Crawley: Moods & Miniatures.

Volk is joined on the recording by two current School of Music faculty members (flutist Michelle Cheramy and clarinetist Christine Carter) and another fellow Faculty Emeritus (pianist Beverly Diamond).

Volk, on Crawley's music: "The works on this recording demonstrate his genius in writing miniatures that make impactful statements in short movements. He often draws on familiar elements, such as well-known dance idioms, that he inflects in highly original ways. These delightful, exquisitely crafted character pieces are densely packed with expressive ideas and rapid changes of mood. The style is original – accessible but never predictable."
