Selected correspondence of Charles Ives by Charles Ives( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This authoritative volume of 453 letters written by and to composer Charles Ives (1874-1954) provides unparalleled insight into one of the most extraordinary and paradoxical careers in American music history. The most comprehensive collection of Ives's correspondence in print, this book opens a window on Ives's complex personality and his creative process. Letters deal with the composer's day-to-day concerns, his health, family life, and friendships; the composition, performance, and editing of his music, and his activities as a patron and sponsor of new music concerts, publications, and recordings." "Though Ives spent much of his career out of the mainstream of professional music-making, he corresponded with a surprisingly large group of musicians and critics, including John J. Becker, Henry Bellamann, Leonard Bernstein, John Cage, Aaron Copland, Henry Cowell, Ingolf Dahl, Walter Damrosch, Lehman Engel, Clifton J. Furness, Lou Harrison, Bernard Herrmann, John Kirkpatrick, Serge Koussevitzky, John Lomax, Francesco Malipiero, Radiana Pazmor, Paul Rosenfeld, Carl Ruggles, E. Robert Schmitz, Nicolas Slonimsky, and Peter Yates. Ives's letters also shed light on his relationships with his father and wife, both of whom greatly influenced his creative life, and show how important Ives was as a patron to Henry Cowell's New Music and to the larger modern music community. Meticulously annotated to contextualize Ives's work both historically and musically, these letters tell Ives's story in his own words and offer an important new perspective on American music."--Jacket
Charles Ives remembered : an oral history by Vivian Perlis( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Ives was an extraordinary personality as well as a brilliant composer and insurance genius. The publication of this unique work, based on Ives's manuscripts and papers from the Charles Ives Collection in the Yale Music Library and on extensive interviews with people from all aspects of his multifaceted life, coincides with the centenary of Ives's birth. Integrating all this material into a highly readable narrative, Vivian Perlis has woven a vivid portrait of a fascinating man. An unconventional man, Ives did not choose ordinary friends and associates, as illustrated by the people interviewed for this book. They range from elderly Danbury residents, who remember Ives as a boy, to insurance executives, who describe his innovations in the life insurance business. Members of the Ives family reminisce about "Uncle Charlie's" vigorous and athletic youth, and his classmates from Yale ('98) recall the early musical accomplishments of his college years. A complete picture of Ives the composer is provided by numerous composers and performers who worked with Ives during his lifetime. The anecdotes recounted by Ives's friends and neighbors--and even his barber--bring Charles Ives to life for the reader. In addition to fifty-eight edited interviews, each prefaced with an introduction by Mrs. Perlis, the book includes over eighty illustrations, many of them reproduced here for the first time--unique photographs of Ives and his family and associates, original music manuscripts, rare programs of performances of Ives's works, and handwritten letters both to and from Ives. These combine to form an in-depth picture of one of the most original and creative minds of the twentieth century [Publisher description]
