Favorite Piece for Autumn

My favorite piece of American classical music is Ives' "Alcotts" movement from his Concord Sonata, which revolves around opening notes of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.  Here it's played live not long ago by MacArthur genius winner Jeremy Denk.  Jeremy's also written another piece for The New Yorker this year.  And I interviewed him for my Beethoven book.
