Five Songs, By Charles Ives
arr. for horn and piano, by Ian Zook
Carefully selected and arranged, these five early 20th century pieces paint a portrait of America as it was in and around the turn of the century. This is Americana at its finest, neither overly sentimental nor jingoistic, these pieces take American themes and present them as real life, with deep feeling.
The arrangements challenge the horn player and accompanist, mainly showing the low and middle range of the instrument while saving the upper register for the grand finish! Piano score is coil bound, with separate horn part.
