Charles Ives: Two Contemplations: I. Central Park in the Dark II. The Unanswered Question
Richard Strauss: Metamorphosen
Ryan Bancroft has designed an interesting programme that probes questions of eternity and infinity. Ives leads the listener into New York’s Central Park at night, while Strauss’s Metamorphoses reflect the senseless destruction wrought by war on art and art institutions.
