Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A groundbreaking American composer, Ives' simultaneous intertwining of formal and vernacular elements in his works is his hallmark. Instances is Carter's last orchestral composition and his penultimate work of any kind. This recording was its world premiere performance. Gershwin's ever-popular American in Paris closes the disc. The Seattle Symphony under their Music Director Ludovic Morlot has enjoyed national and international acclaim for its programming and performances.

Review

With the piece's folksy sides underplayed, Ludovic Morlot's luminous conception of Ives's Second strikes me as a very European take on Ives. I've had the slow movement on a loop, but it won't be for everybody. The Gershwin is suave, the Carter, a Seattle commission not heard until after the composer's death, episodically, thornily witty. --Allen, New York Times Classical Playlist
