Notes & Reviews:

'Responses to Ives' was conceived in 2003 by pianist Heather O'Donnell as a way to acknowledge the 50th anniversary of Charles Ives' death (May 19, 2004). She approached composers spanning a generation, known to have strong affinities for Ives and asked them to write a "musical reflection" on the presence of Ives in their lives and work. The set was premiered at the MaerzMusik Festival in Berlin in 2004 in the midst of a twelve hour extravaganza of Ives. The CD includes the first recording of Ives' 'London Bridge is Falling Down!'
