I did listen to it - it was quite... 'polite', I think. Will listen again, and to other Ives as all I've really heard was a raucous New England Holidays in concert.

I just won a prize of Oliver Coates' arrangment of John Adams' Canticles Of The Sky, on vinyl.
Fortunately enclosed was a code for a download in flac or wav format (and others).
The digital version has four more tracks than the vinyl, which is a 45rpm lp.

Going to give it a hearing tonight.

Caught a good chunk of the below on the radio a few weeks ago. No idea what it was but I started guessing it was some
Downtown NY persons take on Mod Classical. Turns out it was recorded in 1971. I was off by like 30 to 40 years.

I didn't know George Antheil wrote an opera. It's called The Brothers. There's a new CD on cpo

a lot of it sounds like the soundtrack for a humourless Warner Brothers cartoon.


FZ would've loved this quote!

Donít knock Warner Brotherís cartoons. Back in the sixties before they rationalised the way they produced cartoons there was high quality animation, good music and engaging storylines. Does anyone here remember the line: This time, we didnít forget the gravy!

I remember. And what about "I want a whole lot of lumps!" And also "Shut up shuttin' up, rabbit."

I donít recall those. Another good one was the singing frog. Thereís a band that makes music using samples of that era, I just canít think of the name right now.

Yeah I'm with you on this - I bought the Carl Stalling CD when it was stocked by G&S Music, and there's some great stuff on it. It can be very fragmented, lots of bits chopped up and changes of pace and tone, odd jarring rhythms, very similar to some contemporary music. "Shall we take ourselves seriously..." :)

Iím reading Classical Music Expect the unexpected by Kent Nagano. He doesnít say too much about FZ which is too bad but he does indicate he admires Ernst Krenek which my initial cursory forays finds quite nice. Thanks to whom ever mentioned Takemisu which although quite different Iíve also enjoyed.
