Charles Ivesís oeuvre is just as extensive as it is enigmatic. If The Unanswered Question and Central Park in the Dark have achieved something like cult status, his chamber music and songs are practically unknown.

The Ensemble Avantgarde and the soprano Julia Sophie Wagner set out on a journey of discovery to a composer who was far ahead of his times. Many of Ivesís works are available in various versions and instrumentations. The dreamy Remembrance can be found in three versions on this CD which is both top-class and original. From very romantic (as in Feldeinsamkeit) to popular music (Circus Band): in Ives we find everything Ė and sometimes everything at one and the same time.

Steffen Schleiermacher and the Ensemble Avantgarde have long established themselves as wonderful exponents of modern music, so are the ideal partners to make this recording.
