FOWC with Fandango: Classic

There is classical music and classical music. We all know about Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin to name a few, but what about Charles Ives. He was an American composer, but something a little different. There are no tunes that you could hum along to, or even remember afterwards. I am no expert, but what he wrote was really something completely different.

I read somewhere that he once organised 2-3 bands to march towards a central point from various streets, each playing a different tune. His most well known piece is “The Unanswered Question” in the above video. I do not think it is a question of liking or not liking it, but just listening and forming an opinion. Charles Ives did things completely different: classical music with a difference.
