Remembrance: A Charles Ives Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Joseph Stevenson
There are several collections of selections from the many short works of Charles Ives. Perhaps the best one is the EMI set by the Ensemble Modern conducted by Ingo Metzmacher. This collection, by the Detroit Chamber Winds "and Friends," conducted by H. Robert Reynolds, is a close second. Furthermore, it gains particular distinction because of its emphasis on some of Ives' very early music. The program includes such early works as "Marches II" and "III" and the charming "Holiday Quickstep," a march Charles Ives wrote for his father's theater band at the age of 13 as a Christmas present. This is primarily a band recording, and most of the music is arranged for wind ...

There are several collections of selections from the many short works of Charles Ives. Perhaps the best one is the EMI set by the Ensemble Modern conducted by Ingo Metzmacher. This collection, by the Detroit Chamber Winds "and Friends," conducted by H. Robert Reynolds, is a close second. Furthermore, it gains particular distinction because of its emphasis on some of Ives' very early music. The program includes such early works as "Marches II" and "III" and the charming "Holiday Quickstep," a march Charles Ives wrote for his father's theater band at the age of 13 as a Christmas present. This is primarily a band recording, and most of the music is arranged for wind instruments. To the credit of the release coordinators, the names of the editors of the various arrangements are cited where appropriate, but notes could be clearer on the degree to which the songs were reorchestrated for this release. Some pieces do have a few strings including, of course, "The Unanswered Question", while others are for brass ensemble, and there is a set of four early songs arranged for brass quintet. These include the Kipling song "Tarrant Moss," better known as "Slugging a Vampire," and the earliest known Ives composition, "Slow March," a touching piece written for the funeral of a family pet when Ives was 12. Toward the end of the program, the emphasis shifts to the most radical of his short pieces, including "Gyp the Blood or Hearst?!: Which Is Worst?!" and the two extant "Tone Roads." In all, this is a well-planned and illuminating program and very well played. Michael Fine produced and recorded the disc a guarantee of good sound in 1992, and it is highly recommended, particularly for the insight it gives into Ives' development as a composer.
