Count me in the "love him" camp. I'm so glad Ann Street grabbed your attention. I played it a few years back in a flurry of recitals and concerts, and while I can not stop raving about the piece, most people acknowledge it with a funny, perplexed look on their faces. "Oh, you mean that jokey little song? Uh, yeah, I guess it's ok. It's really short, right?" Yes, I must bring Ann Street up to snuff again, along with The Se'er.

The Ives Fourth Symphony, live, at least when Tilson Thomas conducted it in San Francisco, is one of the great symphonies of all time, period. And the fact that it's nuttier than hell is only helping it to age well. I don't listen to much solo piano, because, well, I need to save something for my old age.
