Charles Ives The Sonatas for Violin and Piano, Vol. 1 Paul Zukofsky, violin and Gilbert Kalish, piano (1964) CD
"This item is part of the Folkways archives. The original liner notes from the LP are included."
Charles Ives has grown into one of the most important American classical composers of international distinction, but it wasnt always like this: Ives was frustrated by indifferent audiences and ambivalent critics throughout his entire career and most of his life. Violinist Paul Zukofsky and pianist Gilbert Kalish perform Sonatas No. 1 and No. 2. Evidently, the range of compositional devices Ives usedpolytonality, atonality, complex multi-rhythms, tone clusters, twelve-tone rows, metrical modulation, and microtonalitydisturbed or bewildered nearly all of [Ives] contemporaries. But the sonatas present some of the most appealing and listenable material Ives produced. See also FW03347 Charles Ives: The Sonatas for Violin and Piano, Vol. 2.
