Charles Ives

October 20, 1874 - May 19, 1954
born in Danbury, CT, composed during the Modern period
Intractably original, American composer Charles Ives (1874-1954) carved out a timeless legacy of innovation in music while holding down a regular job as an insurance executive. Educated by his bandmaster father and in Horatio Parker's class at Yale, the poor reception to Ives' highly experimental music led him to eschew a career as a composer. Ives composed six symphonies, Three Places in New England, the "Concord" Piano Sonata, string quartets, and some 250 songs, several of which are regarded as central to American art song literature. Ives' work continues to inspire -- and baffle -- musicians into the twenty-first century. ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

Comments

A compositiona l genius and an all-time favorite of mine. I really wish "Old Songs Deranged" would be released on CD or for download. It was my 1st experience with Ives back in the 70s.
I just had dinner with his grandson, whom I will soon ask about the acid incident(s). The Academy of Arts and Letters (http://www. a r t s a n d l e t t e r s . o r g / a b o u t . p h p ) has recreated his Redding, CT study in NYC; I believe it's to be open to the public next spring. :-)

I love this music

I kind of like what I am hearing here. Not a musicologist , but I find some of the passages soaring.
Auntie Hosebag,
Your comment is wrong. You Auntie Hosebag are a snitch.
I used to skip school and do acid with his grandson. Truth.

Uncanny genius and vision. Uniquely American and a favorite of educated musicians everywhere.

What an amazing biography!! When we "normal" human beings try to succed at only one job and day to day life, Ives mastered two jobs!! And the music is glorious!! :-D
