Notes & Reviews:

Despite composing in a radically experimental style even before Schoenberg, Berg and Webern, Ives saw himself as the "continuing spirit" in the tradition of Beethoven. His Second Symphony, written between 1902 and 1910, is one of the most "American" and accessible of symphonies, drawing on patriotic marches, Stephen Foster tunes, and a college song for much of its thematic material. By contrast, the Robert Browning Overture is as challenging as the poems by the writer it celebrates.
