"This item is part of the Folkways (Cook, or Paredon, or Monitor) archives.The original liner notes from the LP are included."
"A man whose independence and integrity stand as the highest ideals of the creative spirit" was somehow overlooked during his life. But Ives did gain recognition for his uniquely nationalistic voice and dissonant style, and late in life was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music for his Symphony No. 3. On this recording, James Sykes performs short pieces for piano including "The Anti-Abolitionist Riots," "The Varied Air with Protests" and "Some Southpaw Pitching."
