1902; Premonition, from Poems

Premonitions, to a poem by Robert Underwood Johnson, started life in 1918 as a sketch for chamber ensemble with or without voices and was arranged for voice and piano in 1921. In a short space it traverses a wide range of mood in Ives’s most complex, mature idiom.

Premonitions, sur un poème de Robert Underwood Johnson, fut d’abord, en 1918, une ébauche pour ensemble de chambre, avec ou sans voix, avant d’être arrangée pour voix et piano (1921). En peu de temps, elle parcourt une large palette de climats, dans l’idiome ivesien le plus complexe, le plus abouti.

Premonitions auf ein Gedicht von Robert Underwood Johnson begann 1918 als Skizze für Kammermusikensemble mit oder ohne Singstimmen und wurde 1921 für Gesang und Klavier bearbeitet. Es umfasst in knappem Raum eine weite Bandbreite von Stimmungen in Ives’ komplexestem, reifstem Stil.
