"The evolution of American music is chronicled right here in this quartet of symphonies. And when heard - as I did here - in a single sitting, it's as if Ives is transitioning from the Old World to the New before our very ears...Dudamel - who clearly knows where Ives is coming from - embraces this 'new normal' [in No. 3] with much affection...Their panache is decidedly not central European" (Gramophone)

"There are two chief reasons for Dudamel's success as an Ives conductor with the LA Phil. One is their joint command of complex detail, conveyed in textures that seem to illuminate every thread in the music's crazy patchwork (craziest of all in the overwhelming Fourth). The other is boundless enthusiasm and affection for whatever Ives puts forth." (BBC Music)

"These performances certainly demonstrate that he is a very fine Ives interpreter, unerringly charting the journey from the almost blameless late Romanticism of the First Symphony to the modernist complexity of the Fourth...It's a glorious achievement" (The Guardian Five Stars)
