Keeping Score - Ives: Holidays Symphony / San Francisco Symphony / Tilson Thomas [Blu-Ray]

Album Summary

>Ives, Charles : Holidays
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Ranging from tender sentiment to savage chaos, the music of early 20th-century composer Charles Ives explores an essentially American riddle: how can we survive the relentless assault of our own success? It was an enigma Ives embodied himself. He believed that we should all be brave enough to go it alone - yet he earned his living in insurance. In this volume of Keeping Score, Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony unwrap the layers of Ives' Holidays Symphony to reveal a surprising musical portrait of New England. The symphony's four movements journey across the terrain of the seasons. From the intimacy of the winter hearth to the explosive concussion of the 4th of July, discover the insights Ives liberates in his music's confrontational crunch. Join Michael Tilson Thomas as he, the San Francisco Symphony and Charles Ives belt it out over truth, beauty, and the American Way. As a bonus, the disc includes a full length concert performance of the symphony.
