Inverness Music Festival:
1974: A Centennial Tribute to Charles Ives

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 84 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

A program of music by Charles Ives, performed at the San Domenico School in San Anselmo, California as part of the 1974 Inverness Music Festival. The program begins with a brief biographical sketch of this important American composer, offered by the concert host and narrator, James Frush. The concert proper then gets under way with Ives’ “Sonata No. 4 for Violin and Piano”. This is then followed by a selection of songs, either written or arranged by Charles Ives. Some of these songs are settings for a variety of 19th and 20th century poets, ranging from the German Romanticism of Heinrich Heine to American cowboy poems of D J. O’Malley, while others use Ives’ own words. Additional works heard include the “Piano Study No. 9: The Anti-Abolitionist Riots in the 1830’s and 1840’s” and the “Trio for Violin, Violoncello and Piano”. Held a hundred years after the composer’s birth, this concert helped reawaken American audiences to the many varied works of Charles Ives.
