Description

Charles Ives has grown into one of the most important American classical composers of international distinction, but it wasn’t always like this: Ives was frustrated by indifferent audiences and ambivalent critics throughout his entire career and most of his life. Violinist Paul Zukofsky and pianist Gilbert Kalish perform Sonatas No. 1 and No. 2. Evidently, the range of compositional devices Ives used—polytonality, atonality, complex multi-rhythms, tone clusters, twelve-tone rows, metrical modulation, and microtonality—“disturbed or bewildered nearly all of [Ives’] contemporaries.” But the sonatas present some of the most appealing and listenable material Ives produced.
