Charles Ives:
Holidays Symphony

Ranging from tender sentiment to savage chaos, the music of early 20th-century composer Charles Ives explores an essentially American riddle: how can we survive the relentless assault of our own success? Unwrap the layers of Ives's Holidays Symphony as Keeping Score takes us inside this musical portrait of New England life. From the intimacy of the winter hearth to the explosive concussion of the 4th of July, discover the insights Ives liberates in his music's confrontational crunch. Join Michael Tilson Thomas as he, the San Francisco Symphony, and Charles Ives belt it out over truth, beauty, and the American Way.

What a brilliant program highlighting this much misunderstood master! I was enthralled by Michael Tilson Thomas' presentation of the material in Ives' "Holidays Symphony." To explain these concepts through this type of program is an important opportunity in this "sound-bite" culture in which we live. Ives was an archivist - a musical historian who was trying to say to us all through his music "slow down, watch and listen to the world around you - in a moment this time will be nothing but a memory." I was enlightened. Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony - Bravo!

Since reading Alex Ross's brilliant survey of 20th century music last year, my passion for the modern masters has grown. I'm old enough to remember Bernstein's wonderful television programs in the 1960's and loved him, but Michael Tilson Thomas I think is even better. I've now seen 3 of the Keeping Score programs and have enjoyed them all immensely, but the Ives just blew me away. I hope this series continues for years. I'd love to see an episode on John Adams. Thank you.
