Jeremy Denk's long-awaited CD of the Piano Sonatas of Charles Ives. With accompanying 24-page booklet notes written by Denk "that remind us why the Washington Post's Joan Reinthaler found Denk's "the most interesting and well-written program notes [she had] ever read." Denk's recital programs have long featured not only Ives's famous and monumental "Concord" Sonata but also the far less familiar Sonata No. 1, impressing critics with "thrilling performances" (Anthony Tommasini, New York Times) that offer "an entire world" (Anne Midgette, Washington Post). "Ives wants to recreate the raw experience of music-making, something unfiltered, and beyond all your piano lessons... . While driving me crazy, he reminds me why I play the piano at all." - Jeremy Denk

He brings the same fire and technique to this recording of Ives. I've never heard Denk do jazz, or even if he cares to. But someday he should try some Bill Evans or Dave Brubeck or Billy Strayhorn or Marylou Williams.
