Notes & Reviews:

In this second volume, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and its chief conductor Sir Andrew Davis play some of the most characteristic pieces of Charles Ives, an insurance salesman by trade and one of the most precociously original of all American composers.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2016
Bringing all these pieces together in dedicated modern performance, with imaginative balance decisions, this disc is a welcome landmark.

The Guardian, 14th January 2016
It's rare to hear a recording in which so much of the detail in these teeming scores has been captured. One might can quibble over some passages - there are a moments that do seem too contained and civilised, when a bit more untidiness and wildness might have been appropriate - but overall it is a wonderfully realised collection of some of the most remarkable American music of the 20th century.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2016
Davis has thought long and hard about these... and his Melbourne orchestra responds with confidence and precision... fine performances of fascinating and often thrilling music.
