Notes & Reviews:

An heir to New England Transcendentalism, Ives shared its reverence for the beauty and power of the individual. His love for spontaneous, untrained creativity led him to explore compositional methods that anticipate not only the ideas on atonality formulated by Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern but the radical experimentalism of composers of the second half of the twentieth century.
