Dave, this is a wonderful presentation.
The first half, looking at the harmonic underpinnings  is an informative set up to hearing his music in the 2nd half. This was a very colorful selection of Ive's pieces. Broad in its scope.
Very entertaining, interesting; and shines a beautiful,  austere and playful  light on a composer,  who too much of the time is not given his due.
Thanks for posting!

No sign of him here, even though Elliott Carter was mentored by Ives in his youth.

Best,
