Item Details
Jasper Wood, violin/ David Riley, piano

IVES: Violin Sonata No. 3, S.62 • Violin Sonata No. 4, S.63 "Children's Day at the Camp Meeting" • Decoration Day, S.64 (ed. J. Kirkpatrick) • Largo for violin & piano • 7 songs (arr. violin & piano by Matthew Feurst) (premieres)

Violinist Jasper Wood has garnered international critical acclaim for his solo performances with orchestras and chamber music concerts. Known for his intimate and dazzling recitals, Wood is sought after as a musician with his own personal voice. He can be heard frequently on NPR in the United States and on the CBC in Canada.

Pianist David Riley gave more than 50 concerts the past season, including two at the National Art Gallery in Washington DC and Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall. He has been heard on dozens of radio broadcasts on WQXR and WNYC in New York, Canada's CBC, and NPR's Performance Today.

This unique CD explores the very accessible violin and piano music of Charles Ives. Here is little of the dissonance or rhythmic complexity that some listeners find difficult—this is music primarily of simplicity and beauty. Included are seven of Ives's songs, arranged for violin and piano by Matthew Feurst and recorded here for the first time ever! The songs are: Wiel' Auf Mir ("Eyes So Dark"), S.387; Feldeinsamkeit ("In Summer Fields"), S.250; Rosamunde, S.337; Berceuse, S.220; Kären, S.285; Omens and Oracles, S.317; and From "Night of Frost in May," S.309.

"Encores there must be wherever Wood and Riley play: theirs is a beautiful collaboration…Wood is always a joy to hear..." - Gramophone
