Naxos' American Classics Series

Naxos presents the world première recording of Ives’ completed Orchestral Set No. 3 and a vibrant new recording of Copland’s Piano Concerto.

Ives scholar James Sinclair conducts the Malmö Symphony Orchestra in definitive performances of Ives’ Orchestral Sets, including the world première of the completed (from Ives’s sketches) three-movement version of the Third Orchestral Set and “Version 1” of the famous First Orchestral Set: Three Places in New England. This is the third volume, with more to come, in our cycle of Ives’ complete orchestral music.

Pianist Benjamin Pasternack, critically praised for his idiomatic mastery of Copland’s music,  is the soloist in the composer’s concerto with Robert Hanson conducting the Elgin Symphony. Naxos American Classics presents the most comprehensive collection of music by American composers available anywhere — click here to check out the series!
