Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic present a rare complete set of the symphonies by Charles Ives. These critically acclaimed live performances were recorded at Walt Disney Concert Hall in February 2020. Ives was an American original, an artist ahead of his time who explored novel combinations of traditional classical forms and American vernacular music, pioneering and exploiting techniques of polytonality, polyrhythm, and textural complexity. These recordings offer fresh insights into the music of a radical thinker and creator of what Leonard Bernstein called "his own private musical revolution."
