Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Charles Ives composed nearly 200 songs throughout his life. Wiley Hitchcock, in the thorough introduction to his 2004 critical edition 129 Songs, described the Ives song canon as "the contents of a kind of scrapbook or commonplace book or chapbook, or even a desk drawer. Into such a receptacle Ives tossed irregularly, if not casually, his reactions - in the form of songs - to memories, personalities, places, events, discoveries, ideas, visions, and fantasies in his life." His songs exhibit reverence for the populace and pop culture, daring adventure, and family devotion; life and death.

"The painterly details of Ives's songs are vividly conveyed by the bright-voiced Susan Narucki and the pianist Donald Berman on a new disc whose 27 diverse selections (most from H. Wiley Hitchcock's 2004 critical edition) highlight Ives's multiple influences. Those included European Romanticism and religious and secular American tunes, which he meshed with his own inventive, radical harmonies...The heavy weariness of "Like a Sick Eagle" is aptly conveyed by Ms. Narucki and Mr. Berman, before they plunge into the violent waters of "Swimmers," whose wildly turbulent piano part underpins a soaring vocal line." - NY Times
