Thursdays go better with a bow tie. A quick cuppa of Earl Grey, then off to give a little talk on Charles Ives.
In 1944, Arnold Schoenberg was living, in exile, in California when he wrote this succinct summary America’s most original composer: “There is a great Man living in this Country – a composer. He has solved the problem how to preserve one’s self-esteem and to learn. He responds to negligence by contempt. He is not forced to accept praise or blame. His name is Ives.”
