      Here's another recently-released disc that I just stumbled across
      tonight.

      CATALOGUE NR: 8559127
      RECORD LABEL: Naxos
      RELEASE DATE: 03-May-2004
      COMPOSER: Charles Ives
      TITLE: Piano Music
      TRACKS: Piano Sonata No.2 Concord. Varied Air and Variations. The
      Celestial Railroad. Emerson.
      ARTISTS: Steven Mayer

      Anyone familiar with this pianist?

      As with most Naxos artists, Mayer is not front rank. He s American and specialises in American repertoire. I haven t heard his work, but Pierre Laurent

        As with most Naxos artists, Mayer is not front rank. He's American
        and specialises in American repertoire. I haven't heard his work,
        but Pierre Laurent Aimard is indisputedly one of the greatest
        virtuoso pianists specialisng in new music, so no matter how good he
        is, Mayer will be be outclassed. Either Naxos was nuts issuing this
        in the same week as Aimard, or they know their disc will be bought as
        an extra, on spec, by Ives devotees.

          I just listened to this at the Naxos site and I was more than pleased. This recording is quite different from Lubimov's, but I really enjoyed it. The Alcott's is much slower and very graceful. I will definitely pick this up - for $7 it's a no-brainer.

            Naxos nuts? Quite possible ;) They definitely do things differently.

            But like I've said before, I have found some merit in this recording based on the two or so listenings that I have done at the Naxos site. Aimard's most likely will be *the* holy grail, but us Ives junkies willl want another interpretation of this masterpiece, even if slightly inferior.
