Description
This set of 40, typically idiosyncratic Charles Ives songs takes us alphabetically from "Paracelsus" (lexcerpted from Robert Browning's epic) through "A Sea Dirge" (set to Shakespeare) to "Swimmer" (lyrics by Louis Untermeyer). Highlights include mezzo Leah Wool's "Qu'il m'irait bien," tenor Kenneth Tarver's "Rosenzweige," countertenor Ian Howell's "Serenity," and bass David Pittsinger's "Slow March." Among the other selections are "Romanzo di Central Park," "Rock of Ages," "Slugging a Vampire," "The Side Show," and "The South Wind." Before Ned Rorem, Ives (18741954) was the most distinctive and important composer of art songs in America. This musical visionary continually broke with European models to create a highly personal form of musical expression. This disc is part of a set collecting his nearly 200 songs, set to verses by poets ranging from Shakespeare, Goethe, Keats, and Byron to Whitman and Kipling, with many original texts as well.

"'A Son of a Gambolier' (a riotously funny 1895 song with a fascinating piano line) backs tenor MacPherson with a piano, violin, piccolo, two trombones, and four kazoos. Such additions make this set indispensable for Ives fans."Fanfare

"The warm mezzo of Tamara Mumford makes a good impression, not least in the visionary 'Sunrise'."BBC Music
