It used to be that the majority of good Ives recordings were American, and it was thought that you had to be American to really catch the complex web of vernacular musical references on which Ives' music rests. But it's a rare nonspecialist American listener today who will identify all the 19th century hymns and band tunes that go by, and this highly successful recording by Sir Andrew Davis and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra tackles a different difficulty with Ives: the problem of balance and clarity in his large orchestral scores.

The Unanswered Question is a musical work by American composer Charles Ives. Originally paired with Central Park in the Dark as Two Contemplations in 1908, The Unanswered Question was revived by Ives in 1930–1935. As with many of Ives' works, it was largely unknown until much later in his life, and was not performed until 1946

The 2nd and 3rd symphonies, Three Places In New England, Unanswered Question, Central Park In the Dark, Concord Sonata are all worth investigating. A lot of people like Bernstein with Ives; I prefer Howard Hanson. Any adventurer may want to try out the 4th symphony.

One of Ives' best-known orchestral works, this is famous for its borrowing and paraphrasing of traditional American songs. It was completed in 1914 but revised in 1929 prior to its 1930 premiere in New York, conducted by Nicolas Slonimsky. It is composed of three movements, titled as follows: The St. Gaudens in Boston Common (Col. Shaw and his Colored Regiment). Putnam’s Camp, Redding, Connecticut. The Housatonic at Stockbridge. Three Places in New England" Track Info. Written By Charles Ives. Release Date February 16, 1930.

Ives noted that the "Concord" was a work that never seemed finished; it was a perpetual work in motion, a continual improvisation: "I don't know as I shall ever write out, as it may take away the daily pleasure of playing this music and seeing it grow and feeling that it is not finished. I may always have the pleasure " As Ives implies, the sonata defies any single interpretation. Many pianists have something unique and interesting to say about this elusive, protean work. Roberto Szidon (DG Classikon 4394802, coupled with "Three Places in New England" conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas and "Central Park in the Dark" conducted by Ozawa). I like Szidon's performance very much.
