Sven B. Schreiber I've bought this album mainly because of the Stravinsky pieces, but actually all of the tracks are superb, both regarding composition as well as performance. Especially the "Zwölftonspiel" by Josef Matthias Hauer, which I didn't know before, is exactly to my liking. Favorite track: Stravinsky: Sonata for Two Pianos, ii. Theme with variations.

The ‘St Gaudens’ on Boston Common Moving, -Marching- Faces of Souls! Marked with generations of pain, Part-freers of a Destiny, Slowly, restlessly-swaying us on with you Towards other Freedom . . . You images of a Divine Law Carved in the shadow of a saddened heart-- Never light abandoned-- Of an age and of a nation. Above and beyond that compelling mass Rises the drum beat of the common-heart In the silence of a strange and Sounding afterglow Moving, -Marching- Faces of Souls! - Charles Ives, preface to the score of Impression of the ‘St Gaudens’ In Boston Common
