Charles Ives’s Musical Universe

Charles IvesIn this landmark volume on Charles Ives, the largest ever published, detailed analyses are provided across his output, from Variations on America to the Universe Symphony, at last revealing much of the structural “code” that underlies his music. There is no comparable volume in existence that provides a similar level or breadth of insight across the composer’s output. Forensically answering, too, the challenges of revisionism, the real Charles Ives re-emerges for the first time in three decades—no longer an invention and captive of an alternate universe. Ives and his music emerge taller and more remarkable than ever.
