to those who told me that my music had some Ives flavour. Curious about Ives today I got a Cd of him from the local library:

Symphony nr.3
Washington's Birthday
Two Contemplations
Country Band March
Overture and March "1776"

I already listened to the Symphony and must admit that I really like his music. I couldn't find yet any relation with my music. Thank you for this. I would have considered not having heard Ives a seriou lack of my musical education.

The next days I am going to study the symphony together with the score, which I also have.
