Description
Completed in 1902 but not premiered until 1951, Charles Ives's bucolic Symphony No. 2—one of the composer's most mainstream compositions—is squarely in the tradition of Antonin Dvorák. Ives is never really conventional, however, so listen for veiled quotations from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, two of Brahms's symphonies, and the song "Turkey in the Straw." Drawing its lyrics from James Agee's novel A Death in the Family, Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915, Op. 24, is a supremely inspired adaptation of a text; it is sung here with poignancy by soprano Linda Hohenfeld. Stephen Somary and the Nürnberg Symphony Orchestra round out this recording with another maverick, Henry Cowell (1897–1965), whose Symphonic Set, Op. 17, is a swaggering tour de force.
