Happy Birthday, Charles Ives! Jeremy Denk capped his Philharmonic debut with an encore Saturday night: “The Alcotts” from Ives’s “Concord” Sonata. Watch this nice 92nd Street Y video of him playing it. The pianism continues tomorrow with Lang Lang playing Mozart (http://bit.ly/1mz8kVH).
If “Concord” whet your appetite for more Ives, enjoy Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic’s performance of Ives’s unwieldy Symphony No. 4. The second movement of which incorporates excerpts from the “Hawthorne” movement of the “Concord” Sonata.
