Notes & Reviews:

A momentous release, as Morlot and the Seattle Symphony follow their acclaimed recording of Ives' Symphony No. 2 with the next installment that includes four of the composer's greatest works. The rarely recorded Symphony No. 4 is a haunting summation of American musical styles, and one of the masterpieces of American music. It receives here a live performance of staggering authority and eloquence that brings Ives' multi-layered sonic canvas to new life. Recorded alongside Symphony No. 3 and Ives' two most beloved short orchestral works, this release is engineered to audiophile standards and set to be an authoritative voice among recordings of Ives' discography.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
It's a treat to hear on silver disc an orchestra I've seen in person about a dozen times. House engineer Dmitri Lipay has done a fine job bringing Seattle's Benaroya Hall into my living room, from the distant, warm, blended perspective one hears from the cheap seats, where I usually sit. These are concert recordings.
