Complete Sonatas for Violin and Piano
Classic CD: Highest Rating
Charles Ives, the father of modern American music, included hymn tunes, ragtime, and other popular themes in these heroic and heartbreaking compositions. These magnificent performances of essential Ives repertoire stand out for their instrumental virtuosity and deep understanding of Ives's idiom. Acclaimed by critics on both sides of the Atlantic, Fulkerson and Shannon's Ives readings have been called the benchmark recording of these works.
"Gregory Fulkerson's accounts of the violin sonatas, focused, polished and energetic, haven't been bettered." - The New York Times - May 7, 2004
