To celebrate the great man's birthday, a master class about his life and music has been completed and will be up on YT within a week. Charles Ives was...A MOTHA))) The class will explore his dissonance techniques, and examine his tonal, bi-tonal, atonal and quarter-tonal piano music, plus a rare recording of THE MAN playing and singin one of his rowdy songs:) Happy Birthday Ivesman, you were the BEST!!

You can celebrate by making sure your insurance is adequate and up-to-date.

Some time ago -- perhaps 33 years ago (in keeping with the theme of THREES) -- Leonard Bernstein recorded a "Trilogy of Thirds":
The Third Symphonies of each of Three American composers:
Aaron Copland
William Schuman
Charles Ives

If ever there was a opulent smorgasbord of modern orchestration and invention, forged by three American titans, this was it!

"If a composer has a nice wife and some nice children, how can he let the children starve on his dissonances?" Charles Ives. Sell that insurance for the wife and kids!:)

I didn't know it was his birthday and even more I have no idea why this thread is here and not in the "regular" pianists corner... But whateve'! grin

Ives is one of the few idols I have, and I do think that he's the idol of almost every composer: No publisher, no fees to get his works, no commissions, plenty of performances, a regular paycheck, his own boss... Come on this is brilliant!
