American composer George Crumb (1929-) often reached back to Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque procedures and designs, sometimes quoting older composers, such as Bach, Chopin, or Schubert. One noted work is 1977's Star Child, written for orchestra, soprano, children's chorus, and percussion, which requires 4 conductors.
