Though they couldn't have been more different in disposition, these two brilliant minds helped shape the musical consciousness of an entire era. Copland and Ives: A Listener's Guide explains why we still listen with admiration to the work of these men, and how their personalities and the era in which they lived affected their music. The accompanying CD includes a sampling of their music from masterworks such as Appalachian Spring and The Unanswered Question to less common gems. Guided listenings deliver a comprehensive account of exactly how the pieces work."--Jacket.
