Charles Ives: Great American Pioneer? Of course. Ives discovered new tonalities and modalities years before any other composer. Great American Innovator? Definitely. Not in these performances of 13 songs by soprano Marni Nixon with pianist John McCabe recorded in 1967 and 24 brief chamber orchestra pieces with Ingo Metzmacher leading the Ensemble Modern recorded in 1991: here Ives sounds like nothing and nobody save his own eccentric self. Nixon with her pure, expressive soprano and McCabe with his forthright technique create performances of hair-raising intensity. Try General William Booth Enters into Heaven and if its violent juxtapositions of military brutality and religious sublimity don't do it for you, you might pass on the songs.

Ensemble Modern was founded in 1980 by members of the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie. From the beginning, the ensemble chose to organize itself democratically. There is no artistic director or chief conductor; instead, all projects, productions and financial matters are decided and supported by the musicians directly Since 1985, Ensemble Modern has been based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. 1993: Grammy nomination. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences nominates the CD "Ives: A Portrait of Charles Ives" of the Ensemble Modern and Ingo Metzmacher as the best orchestral recording. 1994: "Kunstpreis Berlin" – Jubiläumsstiftung 1848/1948.

Ingo Metzmacher (born 10 November 1957 in Hanover, Germany) is a conductor and Artistic Director of the festival KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen in Hanover. His musical education in piano, music theory and conducting was in Hanover, Salzburg and Cologne. He later joined the Ensemble Modern in 1980 as its pianist and became the orchestra's conductor in 1985.

Conductor Ingo Metzmacher, who continues to offer superb performances of Ives' works, turns in a superb reading of the "Set for Theatre Orchestra. All three movements work beautifully, but the best of them is last one, "In the Night. It's a powerful evocation, and a tribute to Ives' abilities that the work manages to convey so much feeling in less than three minutes! This out-of-print CD is worth tracking down. All of the performances-not just the "Set for Theatre Orchestra"-are compelling
