Two masterpieces from geniuses of early 20th-century American music — Ives and Gershwin. With eclectic influences of jazz club, church hall, military band and popular melody, these works amount to nothing less than a portrait of American musical styles. And standing as a delicate counterpoint is a touching document of the world premiere performances of Instances, Elliott Carter’s elegiac last orchestral work.

A groundbreaking American composer, Ives' simultaneous intertwining of formal and vernacular elements in his works is his hallmark. Instances is Carter’s last orchestral composition and his penultimate work of any kind. This recording was its world premiere performance. Gershwin's ever-popular American in Paris closes the disc. The Seattle Symphony under their Music Director Ludovic Morlot has enjoyed national and international acclaim for its programming and performances.
