• Jeremy Denk on Charles Ives

    As American Mavericks approaches, pianist Jeremy Denk speaks movingly about the music and career of maverick composer Charles Ives. Denk describes Ives as the "classic crusty Yankee" who was, conversely, "engaged in one of the most profoundly nostalgic and tender projects in all of music."

    Henry Brant's orchestration of Ives's Concord Sonata is performed by Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony on March 28 at Carnegie Hall.
