These two discs afford a generous survey of Ives’s substantial corpus of piano music, including the two big sonatas, the six-minute Three-Page Sonata, six of the Studies, an obstinately astringent Waltz-Rondo and the set of Five Take-Offs, which parody a piano recital divided between popular tonal and angry atonal offerings. The performances are superb – the readings of the marvellous First Sonata, with its excursions into ragtime, and the dauntingly transcendental Concord sonata, with its flute and viola obbligati, and fixation on Beethoven’s Fifth, are deeply pondered – and so is the recording.
