The Unanswered Question (1908)

The Unanswered Question (1908) Charles Ives raised this question about the great American Experiment and left it to subsequent generations to answer. For this 4th of July, 2021, take the time to listen. I have always felt that the question itself is more in tune with the universe than any of the raucous answers that the orchestra proposes, but I leave it up to you, after a time of chaos and plague, to reach your own conclusion.
