Notes & Reviews:
This is the most important recording of any of Charles Ives' music for a long time. It is the first full realization of his last and greatest work: the most ambitious effort from a great composer who over-extended himself and ruined his health so badly he couldn't finish it himself. He begged others to help him finish. None did. Over ten years before the release of this CD, having been fascinated for years by stories of this mythical music, Johnny Reinhard decided to dig. He found surprisingly clear clues and directions from the great man which convinced him that the Symphony's final form could be defined. He even received the approval of the Ives Society, which is dedicated to making sure that his legacy is not compromised, for his first performance of his realization of this huge work.
