The Live Oak Media Music Makers series soars to new heights with this audio/picture book biography of innovative composer Charles Ives. From Charlie’s first moments--when his father heralded his arrival on a trumpet--to his final efforts to give voice to the universe, WHAT CHARLIE HEARD is a bewitching aural portrait. Live Oak maximizes the rich source material in Ives’s music, developing it into its own character within the audiobook. Chamber musicians led by Rory Young ensure the quality of the musical contributions. Mordicai Gerstein’s reading strikes the perfect balance--his measured tones are as reassuring as a steady drumbeat. WHAT CHARLIE HEARD is a fitting tribute to a master of sound. E.E.M.
