Notes & Reviews:

"The American wind band was part of Ives' native musical world, and its accent pervades his musical language. So what would sound more natural than a full program (74 minutes) of 21 Ives pieces arranged for the modern version of the American wind (or "military") band? Happily, all expectations are not only met but exceeded by this Naxos release... The program is intelligently chosen to illuminate particular aspects of Ives' musical personality. Especially valuable are the earlier marches, songs, and dances. These give a sense of getting to know the scrappy, athletic teen- and college-aged Ives rather than the frail graybeard usually pictured. But coming at just the right moments, in what otherwise is a stream of short pieces, are exquisite transcriptions of the Variations on "America", Fugue in C, Decoration Day, and The Alcotts." -Classics Today (10/10)
