This DVD contains the Porter version (Prelude 1 / Section A / Coda to Section C) of Ives' Universe Symphony (in total 28 minutes). The symphony is split in 2 parts, the DVD beginning with Prelude 1 (14 min), whereas Section A (11 min)+ Coda (3 min) come more to the end. Many other (parts of) works are included, e.g. Symphony 4 (second movement), Unanswered Question, Overture & March 1776, some songs with piano or orchestra, and the Three Quarter Tone Pieces. The whole thing is a scenic performance, so there is little stage noise, talking between the music numbers, and some funny things to see:

It is presently the only available recording of "Porter's Universe". To my ears, the Porter version sounds more like Ives than the Austin and Reinhard versions. And also the other works are well done!
