Pulitzer Prize-winning composer George Crumb remains best known for music he wrote in the 1960s and 70s. His work included Black Angels, a response to the Vietnam War. Now a Crumb revival is afoot, with two works premiering this fall, and a third scheduled for spring. Joel Rose of member station WHYY reports.
