This collection of nine works of mine, recorded by the Ives Ensemble, spans exactly 30 years but all the music was actually written at the opposite ends of this period of time. The six trios are early pieces, composed in 1986 and 1989, while Piano Quintet and the two works for solo piano were written between 2011 and 2016. A 10th piece was also recorded and is available only on download, this is Holt Quartet, composed in 2013. If these compositions were listened to in chronological order, Hugo Pine would be followed by Piano Quartet. These two works are both entirely characteristic of my compositional endeavor at those particular points in time. They are in some ways similar and in some ways very different. What has changed in the intervening 22 years? (Laurence Crane) The Ives Ensemble was founded in 1986 by the Dutch pianist John Snijders and consists of a steady pool of 14 musicians. The ensemble concentrates on performances of non-conducted 20th and 21st century chamber music, in which, ever since the founding of the ensemble, the music of Charles Ives, John Cage, and Morton Feldman has been serving as its base. The ensemble has a large body of commissioned works from such great composers as John Cage, Richard Ayres, Michel van der Aa and many others.
