Description
Opening with three songs about nature ("The Housatonic at Stockbridge," "Soliloquy," and "On the Antipodes"), this program of music by iconoclastic American composer Charles Ives continues with the vivid instrumental pieces Hallowe'en and The Gong on the Hook and Ladder, depicting the annual parade of a local fire brigade. Three more songs follow: "Remembrance" (of the composer's father), "Aeschylus and Sophocles," and "Sunrise" (Ives's final song), as well as several succint but potent piano works.

"Five Take-offs (implying improvisatory freedom, but in fact highly organized), would make a stimulating centrepiece for any modern piano recital.… Song without (Good) Words is quite beautiful—very romantic, but with wrong notes—and Scene Episode begins in much the same mood of emotional serenity…. The Three Quarter-Tone Pieces are aurally the most fascinating of all…. They are now usually played as a simultaneous piano duo, using two pianos, tuned a microtone apart…. A fine, characteristic anthology, splendidly realized."—Penguin Guide
