Nic Gerpe, an acclaimed solo and collaborative pianist, is set to release a stunning album commemorating the work of composer George Crumb. The album, titled “The Makrokosmos 50 Project,” pays homage to Crumb’s landmark piece Makrokosmos, Volume 1 for piano solo and will be available for fans to enjoy on March 15, 2023.

Gerpe’s album is a beautiful tribute to the legendary work of George Crumb, and it showcases his exceptional skill and talent as a pianist. The album features Gerpe’s performance of Makrokosmos, Volume 1, and twelve newly composed pieces by an immensely talented and diverse group of composers. Vera Ivanova, Fernanda Aoki Navarro, Gernot Wolfgang, Eric Guinivan, Alexander Elliott Miller, Viet Cuong, Julie Herndon, Gilda Lyons, Timothy Peterson, Juhi Bansal, Thomas Osborne, and Gerpe himself have each written a new piece in response to one movement of Makrokosmos, Volume 1, each inspired by themes and motifs drawn from Crumb. This new celestial cycle is a celebration and commemoration of Crumb’s original masterpiece.
